Casting Fluxes

Quantity Stock# Price
Borax Flux
Controls oxidation during the melting process by forming a glass that both covers the metal and causes metal oxides to stick to it.

16 oz.

BORAX Buy $11.95
Boric Acid Flux- Good deoxidizer. Can be mixed with borax or used alone. When using with pure graphite crucibles, should be used sparingly. 16 oz. BORIC Buy $11.95

Casting Additives

Description Stock# Price
Nu Cast
Gives old scrap gold new luster. Used during the melting process when casting to revitalize old scrap yellow gold. There's no flux needed and it helps eliminate porosity due to oxidation. One bottle makes 2 oz, which will cast approximately 800 dwt. of gold.
CAS-100.00 Buy $39.95
Re-Cast-It
Add Re-Cast-It when casting old or scrap gold to achieve a bright yellow, porosity free casting. Increases fluidity of old metal, while eliminating reddish surface discoloration. One jar casts approximately 800 dwt. of gold.
