Wax injection problems and solutions

Air Bubbles In Pattern

• Not enough wax in pot • Refill pot
• Wax too hot or too cold • Adjust wax temperture
• Poor contact between mold and  injection nozzle • Hold mold properly
• Too much air pressure • Reduce air pressure

Mold does not fill

• Air pressure too low • Increase air pressure
• Wax too cold • Increase wax temperature*
• Cold mold • Warm up mold by repeated use
• Sprue too narrow • Widen sprue
• Insufficient mold venting (Air trapped in mold) • Improve mold vents
• Mold vents sealed, dirty or clogged with wax • Clean mold vents and keep mold vents open with pewder
• Injector clogged • Clean injector and injector nozzle

Mold over-fills

• Air pressure high • Reduce air pressure
• Mold not closed properly • Hold mold with even pressure
• Recut mold with improved mold locks
• Wax too hot • Adjust wax temperature*
• Injection time too long • Reduce injection time

Wax sticky, bends easily

• Mold open too soon • Lengthen mold holding time
• Wax too hot • Reduce wax temperature*

Excessive shrinkage

• Wax temperature too high • Reduce wax temperature*
• Air pressure too low • Increase air pressure
• Mold holding time too short • Lengthen mold holding time
• Sprue too narrow • Widen sprue
• Cold mold • Warm mold through repeated use
• Low shrinkage wax not selected • Choose low shrinkage

Each mold and each wax is different in its pressure, temperature and mold holding time requirements. The correct combination of factors can be achieved only through experience with each mold and each wax. For easy future reference these factors should be noted on the mold itself.
In addition, a mold's characteristics change as hot wax is repeatedly injected into it. The correct combination of factors for a cold mold may not be the correct combination of factors for the same mold after it has become warm through repeated use. The cooling time between injections - too much or too little - is thus also a factor.
For best results select the right Castaldo SuperCera wax for the requirements of the mold and to meet production needs. (See wax selection chart).
Molten injection waxes are FLAMMABLE at temperatures in excess of 350°F/177°C.
Hot injection waxes can cause skin burns. Avoid contact with skin. Adequate eye protection and protective clothing is strongly recommended.
