As you have probably heard, Cooksons have withdrawn Eco Silver from their range. Basically all their standard silver is made with recycled fine silver and to charge extra for Eco Silver is perhaps a little cheeky.
However, Betts are producing a quality product using reclaimed x-ray plates to give an alloy with 935 parts per 1000. So, from now on we are going to use this as our Eco Silver. The good news is that it appears to be slightly cheaper, and will still assay as Sterling.
I hope you approve of this as it is a genuine eco product using recycled fine silver – no messing. We approve, just carry on as normal and we will use the new metal.
If it’s made of metal – when we then produce a rubber mould and inject wax in – or if it’s a wax from your own cad cam design, we can stick these to a central sprue, pour investment plaster round, and that’s the first bit.
…every day. Castings are sent into the EU area regularly with no problems. With the Pound/Euro exchange rate in your favour it makes for very good value casting. But be warned, our language skills are not the greatest… 🙂
Looking to have your bespoke corporate gift manufactured? Silver, gold, copper and brass giftware has been a core part of our business for 40 years – and no cheap plastic pens in sight! Send us an email or call us to get the ball rolling. We can do more than sticking your logo on a keyring.
We remove the wax – an overnight task in the kiln – then our master caster, with casting grain of your choice, zips the metal in using our vacuum casting machine or centrifuge. Temperature, pressure and time are all critical to get the good results we expect.
