Legor Group USA launches FOV Casters Blend and Premium Blend Investment Powders

Albuquerque, NM—Legor Group USA has teamed up with Whip Mix to manufacture an American-made, high-quality casting investment powder for the jewelry manufacturing market. It will sell under the brand names FOV Investment: Caster’s Blend and FOV Investment: Premium Blend.

Precise pattern duplication can be achieved from the highly smooth surfaces the investment creates. Extended working time beyond traditional 9-10 minutes, upwards of 13 minutes, allows for precision in preparation and no more worries about high shear/high speed mixers reducing working time. A wide tolerance range of water-to-powder mixing ratios is easy to use; highly repeatable results save production time and money.

Works with the majority of gold and silver casting needs. Caster’s Blend also works for brass and bronze; Premium Blend is specially formulated for higher-temperature alloy requirements such as palladium white gold.

Available in 44-lb. box or 10.5-lb. bags. Call Rusty Heath, (844) 428-8335 or email
