What is Lost Foam?

Lost Foam Casting, also known as the expanded polystyrene process, is a sophisticated, cavity-less type of metal casting. This process uses an EPS foam pattern rather than a die cast die or other tool, to shape molten metal into a high-precision component. The foam pattern is supported by sand packed in on all sides, leaving room for molten metal to be poured into the pattern. The heat causes the foam to evaporate, leaving behind a metal part in the desired shape.

Quality 

We maintain a quality management system that is ISO 9001:2015 certified, and we take a proactive approach to ensuring quality throughout the casting process. From design to delivery, you can be sure that we are doing everything we can to provide you with the best customer service and the highest quality components.
