Investment casting technology is a precision casting technology that uses plaster as the main material, combined with precious metals details such as copper, silver, and gold. To effectively preserve casting plaster, it is advisable to consider environmental factors, light, physical contacts, hygiene, and regular inspection.
Temperature and humidity are the two most important environmental factors to be aware of when storing casting plaster items.
• Temperature: Casting plaster should be preserved at a stable temperature with little to no sudden changes. The ideal temperature is from 20 to 25 degrees Celsius.
• Humidity: Avoid excessively humid environments, as plaster may decompose if exposed to high humidity. The ideal range of humidity is between 50 – 60%.
Sunlight could cause damage to plaster, making it loss of adhesion. Therefore, it is important to store casting plaster items in a place away from direct sunlight.
Minimize strong physical impacts and collisions on casting plasters boxes and/or packages.
Casting plaster should be cleaned regularly. Avoid using strong detergents or water to clean the product.
Monitor the condition of casting plaster on a periodical basis. If there is any damage like package leaks or clumps, please consult with an expert.
