Lost Foam Castings
Lost Foam Metal Casting Technology Process Capabilities

Yellow Star makes use of Lost Foam Metal Casting Process Technology to produces high quality ferrous and non-ferrous castings and associated products for the engineering, mining and industrial markets. As the name suggests the process uses a moulded Polystyrene Foam Pattern which is further processed to form an inert, fired ceramic mould. The moulded Polystyrene Foam Pattern is dimensionally accurate and has an even smooth surface finish.
With the use of sophisticated aluminium tools/moulds/dies Polystyrene Foam Patterns with no parting lines, no cores, and zero draft angles can be moulded. In case of extremely complex castings the Polystyrene Foam Pattern can be easily glued together to create the intricate challenging surfaces.

In short the lost foam casting process achieves the quality and precision of the traditional investment casting process that was limited to small castings in larger castings too.
