I am hearing that Casters must use 100% virgin grain with every
batch, as there are some problems using recycled Argentium
material. Are others finding this to be the case?
Troy, you might want to get in touch with Marty via his blog at
Marty has done a fair amount of experimentation with Argentium
Silver (AS) casting, particularly with the newer AS 970 AS which I
believe he finds best suited to the task. I don’t know what his
experience with recycled material might be.
Although AS 970 is not widely advertised I believe it is available
through G&S Gold (http://www.gsgold.com/).
