Blue in color, AquaSphere Plus Wax is an all-purpose jewelry injection wax with a unique formula that makes it suitable for a wide range of designs. Developed specifically for reproducing thin cross sections, the wax offers low shrink, excellent flow, improved opacity, low ash residue, and the pliability needed to easily remove it from the mold with no pattern damage. In addition, it is suitable for stone-in-place casting. Sold in pastillated form, the wax has a melt temperature of 156°F (68.9°C), a solidification temperature of 144°F (62.2°C), and an injection temperature of 158°F to 168°F (70°C to 75.6°C).
