Description

5 Star metal (94.5% Tin / 3% Zinc / 2.5% Antimony) is lead free. However it is more difficult to cast and we recommend that you vent all moulds.

Melts at 230° C (446° F). Cast at 320-400°C.  For fine details castings we recommend that you melt this alloy in our Solder Melting Pot which can bring up the temp to 400c. Domestic cookers will only go up to 310-320c.

Ingot length 122 mm. Width  25mm, weight 85gr  The volume of the bar is the same as our other alloys. As the alloy is lighter, you get more figures per kilo.

    5 star metal

    Best metal for casting jewellery or figures for kids, because it is not toxic.

    Bonne qualité de metal mais pertes à la chauffe.

    J'ai acheté 5 barres de "5 Star Metal". Après en avoir utilisé 3, j'ai remarqué que je n'avais pas réussi à mouler beaucoup de figurines (je n'ai moulé qu'une figurine de 25mm et deux de 40mm). Sur des forums, plusieurs personnes ont posté des commentaires signalant qu'il y a des pertes au moment de la chauffe. Est-ce dû au fait que le metal a été chauffé plusieurs fois? Ou chauffé trop fortement? Quoi qu'il en soit, ce metal, principalement à base d'étain, est ce qu'il y a de moins toxique dans le genre. Je n'ai pas testé les autres alliages.

    Webmaster Response: Did you melt the ingates and sprues again after casting.
    A single bar of metal should cast between 4 to 5 normal 40mm figures (not mounted ones) or 8 to 9 25mm figures (not mounted).
    It seems to me that you either did not melt the metal ingates afterwards or you are referring to mounted figures in some way.
    Basically weigh the figures and see the difference. An average 5 star bar is about 80 grams. There will be a small loss from normal use (contamination from powdered ingates remelting, air interaction on surface of melting metal), but that should be all.

    Problem with the shipment

    Hi,

    I have received my tin bar...

    The metal is fine, but I have to pay 38CHF (30€) of custom fees. Next time when you ship something in Swiss, don't put a declared value on the packet...
