Machinable Wax

Hard wax for machining detail

Machinable wax is an extremely hard wax. Westech's MACH line of machinable waxes have been formulated to deliver exceptional machining properties including high detail. Although it has a higher melting temperature than most other waxes, machinable wax is truly fantastic because it can be machined, cut, or shaped using standard metalworking or woodworking equipment. The result is high quality surface and dimensional accuracy. Machinable wax is ideal for verifying CNC machining programs. Machinable wax can used for precision lost wax casting. These waxes are easy on tool bits, safe for your employees, and can be re-melted and re-used. Machinable wax is available in both blocks and cylinders.

MACH 1: is the best machinable wax to go right from the CNC to investment casting process. MACH 1 won’t crack your shells like the typical high temperature machinable waxes.

MACH 10: is THE machinable wax to use for more traditional machining applications. It’s deep blue color and plastic like qualities make it the right choice for your tooling needs.

Uses for machinable wax include:

  • Prototyping
  • Dental CAD/CAM
  • Jewelry Manufacturing
  • Precision Investment (Lost Wax) Casting
  • Mold making
  • Manufacture of turbines and pump impellers

Fixture Waxes


For your difficult-to-fixture, small, thin-walled, and odd-shaped parts there is nothing better to use than MACH Fixturing wax. MACH FIX is a pourable, thermoplastic material that tightly holds those awkward metal parts for machining. It can be melted out and recycled which makes its use even more cost effective. In addition to metals, MACH FIX wax has also been used successfully with glass, plastic, ceramics, quartz, fiberglass, etc.
