Panther- Dipping The Waxes

Each wax is gated up. That means that they have pour cups and sprues added to each wax piece. The sprues help the gasses to escape when the metal is poured. When they are gated up, each piece is dipped several times in a slurry mixture. There is no hurrying this process. Time is taken to create a good ceramic shell. The ceramic mixture is both inside and outside of the wax pieces.

Each of the many pieces must be dipped in this vat.
They are then covered with this sand. This is done many times. It makes a shell.
The shells cure on a rack in the dip room waiting for their next coat.
