System 96 Casting Billet - Urobrium Pink 015-96 CORNER MISSING - CLEARANCE
Please note these casting billets are reduced due to damaged corners.
System 96 casting billets are hand poured into handy squares to minimize bubble count, and are made from our unique ultra-low-devitrification glass. They are ¾” x 7” x 7” (1.9cm x 16.8cm x 16.8cm) and weigh approximately 3.4 lbs (1.5 kgs) each. System 96 billets are annealed, and are easy to cut in straight lines with a simple score and a thick glass breaking tool or a sharp tap on the opposite surface. Like cutting sheet glass, this takes a little practice and confidence, but once you get the knack of it you’ll never look back.
Billets can be laid into moulds flat, stacked, or shingled. Shingling may provide the lowest bubble count results. To achieve a clean top edge on open face castings, be sure to hold glass back from the mould edges a ½” or so, so that the melting glass touches the bottom edge first, then rises up the mould wall. You want to avoid letting the melting glass touch the top rim of the mold until very late in the firing.
