The beginning of the setting time is called the work time. Work time is the amount of time available for processing. With this information, a specific investing cycle can be established. Several elements must be considered. First, the chemical reaction between the water and calcium sulphate is influenced by mixing. The optimum properties of the investment are developed when mixing is continued for at least 3 minutes.
The second element relates to the nature of the slurry, a combination of water and solids. If the investment is poured too soon the solids will settle out. When this occurs serious surface defects will be encountered. The optimum properties will be achieved when the material is thoroughly mixed and the pouring of the investment is done as close to the gloss off time as practical.
It should be noted that the gloss off time in investments with other chemical bases such as phosphate investment are more difficult to measure. Calcium sulphate investment is more forgiving than most other available materials. Four key operations must be accomplished during the investment process and they must be integrated into an appropriate time schedule. A minimum mixing time of 3 minutes is required to develop the optimum physical properties of the investment.
Shorter times may cause decreases in physical strength and attendant surface defects, break-out or webbing see section on defects at end of article. Mixing may be performed with a spatulator, commercial mixer or by hand. An ordinary kitchen whisk works well for hand mixing. Although spatulation and vibration may be used to replace the vacuum, the vacuum cycle is preferred. Depending on the size and capacity of your equipment, the vacuum cycle requires about 60 seconds.
Roughly 45 to 50 seconds are required to fully evacuate the chamber. At this point the investment will rise significantly. About 4 to 5 seconds after the rise, the investment will collapse and the character of the bubbling will change. About 10 additional seconds of vacuuming should be applied.
Over-vacuuming may cause very small spherical nodules to form on the casting. No additional benefit is achieved by continuing to vacuum more than 10 seconds after the collapse. Pouring a group of flasks usually requires about 60 seconds. Some shops pour in two steps. First a partial fill, and, second, a top off after vacuuming. This allows the investment to rise in the flask without overflowing. In my experience, topping off is probably not the best procedure.
It extends the cycle and sometimes comes too late. The head space at the end of the flask may not be sufficient for investment rise, even when the investment barely covers the model. The use of a rubber or masking tape collar is preferred. The second vacuuming step requires an additional 60 seconds.
You will note that the rise of the investment on the second vacuum cycle will be much less than the rise during the first vacuuming. If you add up the times involved, you will find that some excess time is available.
Since a typical work time is in the range of 9 minutes there are several uses for this extra time. You may set the investment aside during this period. If you allow the investment to stand it will be necessary to mix it briefly before pouring since the ingredients will tend to separate. Alternately, you may continue to mix the investment until you have consumed the available time.
In the case of power mixing in industrial processes, this is the common procedure. Extended mixing times within the work time do not materially affect investment characteristics. In rare cases, it may still be useful to paint the investment onto the surface of the model. This should only be considered when there are very deep, sharp recesses in the surface texture or when no vacuum is available. Some literature suggests that the model should be painted with investment sometimes thinned investment and then sprinkled with dry investment powder before the procedure continues.
There is little reason to use this technique with contemporary materials and processes. The extra time allows for other adjustments to the cycle. For example, the investment can be mixed with heated water to shorten the work time in high-volume production. Other modifications can also be made if they are applied consistently and if they do not interfere with the basic working properties of the materials. By applying the gloss off time to your own requirements an individualized investment cycle can be developed.
The investment process cannot be treated as an independent operation. The design of the model, spruing, pre-treatment of the model surface, post-treatment after setting and burnout may have a dramatic influence on the result. Some other specifics are important. Surfactants or wetting agents improve the contact between the investment and the waxy surface. Commercial materials are available in two basic types. Those which are formulated for use with vacuum systems and those for use with non-vacuum systems.
There is another factor which is beginning to influence surfactant application. Many casters attempt to improve their results by adding additional wetting agents to the investment. A combination of too many wetting agents will actually be less effective. As time goes on it is likely that there will be more wetting agents incorporated in the investment material and less emphasis on treating the model. If you wish to add surfactants to the investment, experiment carefully. Another factor may cause problems.
Waxes cast in silicone rubber molds are very hydrophobic and are more subject to defects caused by poor wetting. The reaction between the gypsum and water continues for an extended period of time alter setting. During this period the investment continues to cure and gain strength.
Introduction of the flask into the furnace stops the reaction. If heating is started too soon it will result in a significantly weaker mold. Small flasks should cure for at least 2 hours and a cure time of 4 to 6 hours should be used for larger flasks. After the reaction is complete, any excess moisture will evaporate. There is no inherent problem with room-temperature storage of the flask for an extended period of time.
However, the flask should be remoistened for 1 to 2 minutes before burnout. The sprue former should be removed prior to rewetting so that the water will flush away any particles of investment that break loose when the sprue former is removed. The basic objective of the burnout cycle is to remove the model from the cavity and then eliminate any carbon residue from the pores of the investment.
The second objective is to bring the flask to temperature without undue stress. This means a slow temperature rise. Since the investment is an insulating material, the rate of rise must be controlled. One problem with the fiber insulated furnaces is the fact that they have a very high rate of temperature rise.
They must be monitored carefully to avoid cracking the investment. These products contain sulfur which reacts with the alloys present. If a brief pickling does not remove the discoloration, acid treatment or abrasion may be required. Since the torch flame may play into the sprue opening, this effect is sometimes localized in the sprues or sections of the work directly adjacent to the sprues. Most metalworkers recognize the inherent dangers of molten metal and a spinning casting arm.
However, there are some less obvious dangers in the process. A inch bell jar has a surface area of approximately 1, square inches. This means that when it is evacuated there is a total pressure of over 14, pounds on its surface. An implosion caused by a defective or damaged bell jar can be very dangerous.
Long-term inhalation of the dust can lead to a lung disease known as silicosis. Good hygiene is very important Keep your work area clean. If you are working in a casting shop or involved with handling of bulk investment you should wear a suitable dust mask. In my opinion, asbestos is the most serious health threat in the casting operation. Most of the references to asbestos for flask or crucible liners were written before this hazard was fully understood.
I would strongly recommend that you do not use any asbestos in your shop. The use of asbestos as a flask liner was often associated with early dental investments, which had a high setting expansion. No liner is necessary for most contemporary jewelry investment. If you feel that a liner is necessary, Kerr Manufacturing and others offer asbestos substitutes. The use of asbestos crucible liners was recommended to promote metal purity and preserve the crucible.
Proper fluxing of the crucible is sufficient. However, you may experience flux buildup to the point where flux is carried into the mold cavity. This generally causes small, bright crystalline porosity on the casting surface. Proper sprue arrangement will generally minimize or eliminate this problem. Before presenting specific troubleshooting suggestions, I will list some fundamental rules that you should always follow:.
Many casting defects may be caused by more than one problem. The preparation of the model, the use and application of the investment, burnout, metal alloy and melting all can have an impact on quality. However, to the extent that the investment relates to the visible defects in the casting the following should be considered:. The channeling watermarks defect, illustrated in Figure 5, can be caused by too much water in the investment, pouring too early in the investment cycle or excess vibration during handling.
Pattern size, shape and orientation in the flask may also contribute. Finning or webbing can be caused by several factors. Placing the flask in the oven too soon or abusive handling may also cause fins. Large, irregularly shaped nodules on the casting usually means you have waited too long in the investment cycle to pour the material. The investment viscosity is so high that significant amounts of air are trapped, forming large cavities.
The majority of spherical nodules are caused by incomplete air removal from the investment see Figure 6. Very small nodules may occur if the material is vacuumed for too long. Failure to use an appropriate wetting agent may also be the problem. If your equipment lacks a reliable vacuum gauge, you may check the vacuum level by placing a tumbler of room temperature water in the chamber.
Poor surface texture can be caused by a wide range of factors. The excessive use of wetting agents they should be allowed to dry , improper burnout cycle, excessive water in the investment or reactions between the model material and the investment may degrade the surface. This last problem usually occurs with certain kinds of plastics.
Natural organic materials cause poor surface texture if they absorb water. Improper model design, spruing, short cure time and rapid temperature rise all may cause surface defects. Overheating the investment will free sulfur compounds which react with the metal surface and may be very difficult to remove.
Overheating also contributes to poor texture. The quality of an investment casting is influenced by every step, from the original design sketch to final buffing. In the case of production items cast from injected waxes, a modest level of reject castings is not a serious problem. However, failures are extremely frustrating if you produce one-of-a-kind objects. In this case, all of the labor invested in model construction is lost if a casting fails.
A clear understanding of investment properties and application can significantly decrease the risk of casting failure. Extra care will produce results that more than justify the extra effort. I would like to thank the Kerr Manufacturing Company for the help and advice provided in the preparation of this article.
Richard D. Austin is a chemical engineering by training and has been a consultant to the jewelry manufacturing industry. He is also a technical writer and a practicing goldsmith. Metalsmith Magazine — Winter. Metalsmith magazine , founded in , is an award winning publication and the only magazine in America devoted to the metal arts. It is preferred that the refractory powder shows a thermal expansion behavior substantially different from those of cristobalite and quartz so that it can give gas permeability to the set product.
The refractory preferably shows a thermal expansion of 0. Now, referring to the production of a dental casting mold using the present dental investment material, for example, 20 to 40 parts by weight of water is added to parts by weight of the dental investment material, and the resulting mixture is kneaded well, and, invested to a wax model in a casting ring.
The wax is then eliminated to provide a dental casting mold having a cavity, to which a molten casting alloy is poured to form a desired castings such as a crown and a bridge in the same manner as has been practiced conventionally. One of the reasons is that the major components of the dental investment material consists of a combination of cristobalite and quartz as a refractory component in addition to the binder calcined gypsum, so that the thermal expansion during burnout can effectively dispersed.
A second reason is that the gas permeability improving additive also incorporated in the investment material allows the steam pressure accompanying the evaporation of the water contained in the material can effectively be released through the material. For example, as shown in Fig. Thus, burnout time can greatly be reduced over the conventional method of starting calcination from normal temperature see Curve S. The term initial burnout temperature used herein means a predetermined temperature to which the furnace is preheated before a green mold is placed therein.
Thus obtained dental investment has a gas permeability of 0. Examples of temperature curves from the initial burnout temperature to a prescribed burnout temperature are as shown in Fig. In any case, the burnout time is drastically reduced over Curve S in which burnout operation is started from normal temperature as conventionally practiced. The dental investment material for the dental casting mold to be used according to this invention contains as the major components refractory cristobalite and quartz in addition to the binder calcined gypsum, and such composition can effectively disperse the thermal expansion during burnout operation to securely prevent occurrence of crack, crevice or breakage.
Accordingly, the resulting dental casting mold involves no problem in the quality. The addition of a gas permeability increasing additive to the major components is also preferred, and if such is the case, a casting mold having further excellent quality can be obtained, since the steam pressure accompanying the evaporation of the water contained in the investment material can effectively be released therethrough.
As described above, it is also possible to add a gas permeability improving additive to the major components. A wax tooth model was invested by the kneaded mixture to form a dental casting mold. The dental investment molds obtained as described above all were of high quality, since they were free from crack, crevice or breakage and had very excellent surface properties as well as smoothness.
A wax tooth model was invested by the kneaded mixture to form a dental investment mold. The dental investment molds obtained as described above all were of high quality, since they were free from crack, crevice or breakage and had very excellent surface properties including smoothness. As has been describe above, the dental investment material according to a first aspect of this invention can facilitate formation of a dental investment free from crack, crevice or breakage by conventional procedure even if it is subjected to rapid heating.
Meanwhile, the present dental investment mold is free from crack, crevice or breakage even if rapid heating is applied, so that the metal casting time can greatly be reduced. Further, the present dental investment mold can immediately cope with a case of emergency.
Since the burning is started at a high temperature, the furnace need not be cooled to normal temperature after each cycle of casting process, enhancing working efficiency and in turn contributing to energy saving. Besides, the present dental casting mold according to a second aspect of this invention enjoys many advantages including that it can provide a castings with excellent quality having smooth surface with no crack, crevice and breakage.
Accordingly, the present dental investment material and dental investment mold having overcome the prior art problem contribute much to the development of the industry. Accordingly, not only the metal casting time can greatly be reduced, but also a castings can immediately be formed coping with a case of emergency. In addition, the furnace need not be cooled to normal temperature after each cycle of casting process, and thus working efficiency can be improved.
The present process also enjoys an advantage that if the furnace is constantly set at a prescribed burnout temperature, casting can be carried out at any time with no loss time. As has been described heretofore, this invention having overcome the prior art problems can reduce not only the cost of burning operation, by a large margin, but also the production cost, since the calcined gypsum, cristobalite and quartz powders used as the major components of the present dental investment material for dental casting molds are not expensive materials, contributing greatly to the development of the industry.
