Unlike some ingot moulds these have been designed with a good taper and smooth inside walls to allow easy release of ingots.
The small lug is for tipping out using tongs. Prior to use the ingot mould should be coated with delta cast mould release or mould blacking to aid ingot release. Re-coat as necessary following manufacturers instructions.
For making ingots after melting down scrap or when too much metal has been smelted.
Ingot moulds should be pre-heated to 300 to 400C to drive off moisture and prevent thermal shock cracking prior to pouring molten metal into them. Use of release coating is advisable which also gives added protection from thermal shock stresses.
