JEL-SET® — The Art of Wax
Investment Casting Wax: A cutting-edge improvement
Westech Wax Products' pioneering JEL-SET® wax is a true innovation: an easy-to-use, non-filled wax that works like a filled wax, reduces shell cracking, is colorful, and increases productivity
Westech’s JEL-SET Pattern Wax. Significantly reduce your shell cracking, work in a much wider range of injection temperatures, significantly reduce flow lines, and get the sink characteristics of a traditional filled wax. Our JEL-SET wax is a non-filled wax – so you recover more in the recycling process and it's perfect for today's low temperature injection machines.
“Westech’s new JEL-SET® wax is a really an incredible wax! We have reduced our hold times by 30% and eliminated shell cracking in a series of parts in which we have historically always given us problems. Even though it has no filler, we see a significant reduction in sink issues in thick sectioned parts. The best part about this wax is that we can use it in our flash de-wax unit without the residual filler mess. The support from our Westech representative really helped us get amazing value from our equipment and process using this really unique wax.”
— Brad Desplinter of Texas Precision Metalcraft
"We rely heavily on our vendors to supplement our staff through technical knowledge and expertise. Westech not only has a great product in JEL-SET® but the technical support they have provided has been phenomenal.”
—Jeff Lantz of Tech Castings Inc.
“I was very skeptical when Westech came in to talk about JEL-SET® pattern wax. I just didn’t believe that you could replace a filled wax with a non-filled wax. Well it is true! JEL-SET® is that good! Using JEL-SET® in production we have nailed dimensions, get better sink values and use less chills, all with no filler! This wax is really something!”
—Robert Pokarth of CPP Port Hueneme
It's also available in vivid colors, so it's easier than ever to see your process – and to stand apart from your competition.
The benefits are huge:
Unique “Jel” formula: This wax offers far less sink than other non-filled waxes and many filled waxes! This means you’ll have less handling issues, and fewer issues keeping your filler in suspension…because there won’t be any!
Injects like filled wax: Our brand-new JEL-SET wax injects like a filled wax. This means you’ll have fewer flow lines and fewer cavitation repairs but guess what? No filler!
Unique "plastic" behavior: Our chemists call it viscoelastic -- it’s the stretching and bending abilities of a wax as it transitions through temperatures. It’s crucial to sound wax injections and to de-waxability. This ultimately reduces shell cracking -- especially on the newer Flash Fire units. You’ll get more productivity, at lower costs.
Proven better: Our autoclave and flash-fire tests have proven that JEL-SET wax reduces shell cracking compared to other “old school” waxes!
Pick your perfect melting temperature: This wax is easily used at extremely low temperatures, so it’s great for units designed for “paste” waxes. This means you get shorter dwell times -- and again, more productivity.
Improves surface finish: Our tests showed that the new JEL-SET wax improved casting surface finish significantly when compared with filled waxes.
Improves details: JEL-SET wax picks up ALL the important details from the mold. You can capture those details and textures in your casting like never before.
Colorful: The bright green color isn’t just for fun. It helps you distinguish between wax products in the room, and can even help you with defect identification. On top of that, your team will have a little bit more pride in being unique, although having a little fun isn’t so bad!
Easy to use: A new JEL-SET guide is available for today’s modern injection machines. With this information, you'll never be guessing, and always getting the best results in all situations.
