In dental restorations, accuracy of the 3d printed restorations as well as the casting quality of the resin have crucial importance in order to reach an optimum restoration that fits perfectly in the patient's dental structure.
PowerCast Burn is widely used in dental restorations with Metal Casting and Emax press for:
- Crowns, Bridges
- Partial denture frameworks

Casting Tips and Burnout Cycle for PowerCast Burn Resin
Here we recommend a certain burnout cycle that is used by a dental lab, however please note that most of our customers uses different burnout and casting process.
In order to have a quality casting, first and foremost, we recommend to follow carefully the specifications provided by the investment brand you are using. These includes:
- Water-powder ratio (use a scale to measure the water and powder)
- Mixing process and time
- Time to leave the flask before inserting in the oven(average 35-45min)
- Burnout cycle
Process of washing, drying before casting
- Wash your prints with ethyl alcohol (ethanol) - You can use 96% Ethyl Alcohol
- The best way is to wash first 2-3 times by spraying ethyl alcohol and blowing dry air with a compressor.
- Please do not leave print inside alcohol for a long time as this may increase the shrinkage of your prints afterwards.
- Please do not use isopropyl alcohol as it is more reactive and ethyl alcohol would be much better to clean without reating with the resin.
- Do not need UV curing before casting. Post-UV curing is common for other resins but for PowerCast resins, it has a negative impact on the casting.
