Countless industries would not be able to function without castings. Castings are formed by pouring liquid metal into a mold, then allowing it to cool and solidify, creating complex shapes that are difficult, if not impossible, to form by using other methods. While you can create castings using just one metal, such as iron, alloys are an extremely popular casting material as well.
There are numerous different types of alloys that are used to create castings, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. As a result, there are a variety of factors to consider when choosing a casting alloy. Some specific considerations include strength, durability, production volume, corrosion resistance, cost, stability, and so on. With over a century of experience between them, Director of Quality Assurance Maynard Gross and President William Easterly, are the undisputed Masters of Melting.
Their experience spans metals from carbon steel to nickel base, including Monel™ copper-nickel, and all stainless steels. Their expertise extends to Super Duplex Stainless Steels such as CE3MN, CD3MN, CE8MN, CK3MCuN, and Hastelloys (CCW12MU, CW6M, CW2M, CW2MW, and CX2M).
