Notes Notes
Wash Castable parts for the shortest time
necessary to remove liquid resin. Ensure
that all solvent has evaporated or been
removed from the parts before curing
and casting.
Castable Wax Resin does not require post-
curing. Allow parts to fully dry before
casting. While post-curing Castable Wax
parts should not affect castability, post-
curing may shrink parts slightly (by less
than 1%), which can cause distortion.
