Aluminosilicate Refractory Flour & Sand
REMASIL® is the trade name for REMET® UK’s Aluminosilicate products. Composed of three systems (REMASIL 48, 50 & 60), all calcined to a constant weight and ground to specific grade of both grains and flours. These products produce investment casting shells of excellent refractoriness and high temperature stability, at an incredibly economical rate. The REMASIL® range provides increased strength when compared to Fused Silica systems.
In the case of stucco grains, the custom grinding of REMASIL results in a more uniform product which has a narrow range of particle sizes and a minimum amount of fines (dust). Reduced fines improve both permeability and intercoat adhesion. Whilst the powder grains can offer the user a greater level of flexibility, through its offering in two separate cuts, allowing a foundryman to choose the specific grade that best suits their needs.
REMASIL 48 Benefits
- Good refractoriness and high temperature stability.
- Easy knockout.
- Increased hot strength.
- Robust and resilient.
- Easy knockout.
REMASIL 60 Benefits
- Higher Alumina content provides for increased refractoriness and stability at high temperatures.
- Excellent for casting larger parts.
- Performs exceptionally well when dimensional stability is crucial.
HYFILL® – Filled Investment Casting Pattern Wax
HYFILL® waxes are incredibly versatile blends of casting wax, containing 30% or greater of an inert polymeric filler content. Utilising REMET UK’s in-depth knowledge, these waxes can be tailored to a customer’s individual purpose, across a wide range of applications. Designed specifically for technically demanding components these casting waxes are characterised by their:
- Excellent dimensional pattern reproducibility
- Producing parts with greater stability
- Reduced contraction rates
- High quality surface finish

LITEFILL – Investment Casting Pattern Wax for the Automated Production Line
The LITEFILL® casting wax range is designed for use in the production of small to medium sized patterns and uses less than 30% polymeric filler content. The materials have good tensile properties, making them suitable for use on high speed automated extrusion injection machinery, in addition to traditional liquid and paste injection machines.
LITEFILL waxes have been used successfully in the automotive industry, for the production of turbo wheels, on automatic machines. These casting waxes can be characterised by their:
- Fast setting nature
- High productivity
- High dimensional stability
- Good flow
- Good surface finish
All materials are designed with reclamation in mind to give our customers a cost effective way of utilising system waxes. All of our reclaim waxes are reconstituted to near virgin standard.

Unfilled Investment Casting Pattern & Runner Wax
Remet’s CASTYLENE® range are blends of pattern and runner/sprue waxes that are unfilled. These waxes have both low melting and congealing points making them suitable for liquid, paste injection and extrusion methods.
The low viscosity of CASTYLENE waxes aids the blends in filling even the most complex dies, producing sharply defined patterns. This characteristic makes this range of waxes ideal for application in the casting of decorative pieces, where detail is critical.
CASTYLENE waxes are tough and flexible to resist breakage and chipping during handling and efficient dewaxing. Its good mechanical properties allow CASTYLENE waxes to perform excellently as a runner/sprue wax, avoiding damage of the wax patterns.

Improve Productivity with Shorter Dwell Times
FastForm® is an ultra low-filled wax that acts as a filled wax. It can be injected as a liquid, but excels as paste wax due to its short cycle times. Produces patterns with the hardness and toughness required for the production of precision investment parts with superb surface finish. Features and benefits of this unique wax are as follows:
- Shorter dwell times increase productivity
- Ultra-low filled pattern wax
- Less shell cracking
- Increases reclaim yield
- Excellent dimensional stability
- Fine surface finish
- Less cavitation, sink and shrink
- Low injection temperature
Water Soluble Wax
SOLUCORE® waxes are able to produce cavities of a far greater complexity than can be achieved through tool design alone.
Remet’s soluble waxes have been designed to allow users to achieve a high level of detail, negating the need to invest in preformed ceramic cores.
Blends of soluble wax can be highly sophisticated compounds, which are able to be tailored to the needs of the investment caster. Through Remet’s expert knowledge, users can control and monitor a soluble wax’s properties leading to improvements in the injection, handling and leaching times. The SOLUCORE range of water soluble waxes are made up of both fibrous and non-fibrous materials, which are suitable for making patterns requiring both small and delicate cores, as well as, large and chunky cores.
SOLUCORE waxes have the following key benefits:
- Low shrink rate
- Fast dissolution speed
- Excellent dimensional stability
- High quality surface finish
- Very limited sink or dishing
- Resistant to crazing and cracking

Sticky Casting Wax
STICKTITE® waxes have been designed specifically as a sticky wax for use in the assembly of sprue/pattern trees prior to the shell forming process. These materials have low odour and smoke and impart exceptionally high adhesive and cohesive strength to the sprue/pattern joint. The differing formulations offer the choice off set up and solidification times.
Remet’s STICKTITE waxes can be used as an adhesive between wax and wax, or sticking ceramic to wax (for instance pouring cups and rings). We are able to specify criteria such as opening times to ensure that the investment caster has the time they require for positioning and correcting parts during assembly.
