Not even sure I'm in the right place to post my inquiry.
Anyway, I'm a lab tech dinosaur who has been working out of my home in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana with a single dentist and doing pfm work only. 48 years in the business. I just attempted to re-order Triumph casting investment from Nobilium and was informed that they have discontinued it with Nobelvest ( something like that). they have some in 90gram packets but no liquid. Hundreds of back orders. Am waiting for a callback to see if I can use the Triumph liquid with the new stuff.
I likely will have to find a new investment brand. I do 99% PFMs to Superior Alloy from Jensen. 62.5%Pd 24%Ag.
I need some recommendations.

I use Whip Mix Fastfire 15 and it works fine.
I cast a lot of d.Sign 59 which is 59% Pd and 28% Ag.

Talladium Galaxy II has been a great universal investment for us. Castings and pressings.

Thank you RDA ! This is good....I'm hoping for as many recommendations as possible. Changing anything gets more annoying at my age,

No real quirks that I know of. As of now, I'm at 10 of distilled water and 15 of the liquid, 25ml total. Be sure to just run a single first, to see where you're at expansion wise.

edit: that is using Argen's Argedent Euro (pfm) 40 Au, 39 Pd, 10 Ag along with my 3Shape die spacer settings.

I used kilos of Superior.

We used Fujivest II and found it very reliable with superior, jc, jcb, endurance, classic, jpw and a few other one shots like Aztec (what idiot thought that was smart)

Henryachein vest is pretty good for most applications from press to cast . Very consistent and pretty fine grain as well .
