Ceramic Mold Casting - Unicast Process

The Unicast process is very similar to the Shaw process, except it does not require the mold to be ignited and then be cured in a furnace. Instead, the mold is partially cured so the pattern can be removed and it is then completely cured by firing it at approximately 1,900 °F (1,040 °C). If a metal with a low melting point is cast then the firing can be skipped, because the mold has enough strength in the "green state" (un-fired).
