Segmented Clamshell Pots
Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 25mm (lxwxh)
Fill measurement: approx. 20mm to top of segments
Instructions for use: PET clamshells require a lower pouring temperature than traditional PVC moulds. We recommend pouring between 55°C and 60°C but no higher than 65°C and 70°C or the wax will cause the mould to melt.
Flaws: On occasion there may be small flaws in the mould which can result in pinhole leaks. The easiest way to check for these is to pour a small amount of wax into the mould and allow it to set, before continuing to pour the remaining wax into the mould slowly. Pinholes will seal quickly when following this method allowing you to use the mould however should you find any major flaws, please keep hold of your clamshells and contact us to discuss.
Points to remember:
- ensure your wax is poured at the correct temperature as recommended above.
- always pour on a protected surface.
- following the above instructions will help minimise loss from minor flaws in the clamshell.
- if you have received faulty, unusable pots, these must be retained for our inspection. Do not discard pots before contacting us first.
