Omni jewelry injection waxes are recognised as being some of the finest quality waxes manufactured exclusively for the jewelry industry throughout the world.
There are five Omni waxes which cover almost every different kind of performance and property needed by the professional jewelry manufacturer. All Omni waxes are packed in convenient 1 kilo bags, 25 per shipping carton.
Omni waxes are used to produce high quality patterns, efficiently and cost effectively, Omni is a name synonymous with top quality products used in the production of jewelry including waxes, investment powders and both.
R1 / Omni 010 - Aqua, Burgundy, Red and Blue
An ideal product for any wax room, 010 has virtually zero shrinkage and produces excellent surface finish and intricate detail on the wax pattern. Omni 010 can be used to produce both large and medium sized patterns and may be used for "stone in place" work.
R25 / Omni 025 - Pink
Perfect for intricate filigree work, flexible with excellent flow properties, 025 is a must for any wax room. The surface of the wax pattern helps produce a perfect casting reducing the amount of polishing work required. This wax is perfect for "stone setting" work.
Waxes for Hot Climates
Omni powders, waxes and silicone rubbers are widely used in many of the "hot climate" markets where, because of extreme temperatures at certain times of the year, different properties are required.
Two new waxes have been developed to ensure that we are able to meet those specific demands (Omni 225 and Omni 228).
This wax is available in Blue or Red colors and, as previously stated has the necessary characteristics to work perfectly under the most extreme of conditions. This is a low viscosity wax with good flow and flexibility. The congealing point is 145°F (63°C) and injection temperature of 158°F (70°C)
Omni 225 has excellent flow, is a fast setting wax and will produce patterns with a high level of detail, including filigree work. This wax is packed in convenient 1 kilo Omni styled sachets, 25 kilos per shipping carton.
Omni 228 is also suitable as a "Hot Climate" wax and differs from 225 in that the viscosity is very much higher; the wax has very good memory, produces fine detail and solidifies quickly.
The congealing point is 146°F (63°C) and the injection temperature 158°F (70°C). Packed in "easy for sale" 1 kilo pictorial sachets, 25 sachets into each shipping carton.
To see the full benefit of all of the Omni waxes use Omni Silicone Rubber to produce your molds.

Getting the best results from your Omni wax
Your Wax Pot: Wax pots should be drained and cleaned regularly. Fill your wax pot at the end of the day; give your Omni wax time to reach the correct injection temperature.
If you have to refill the pot during the production day: (1) Increase the pot temperature to 195°F (90°C) to fast melt the added wax; (2) Stir the added wax in to eliminate bubbles and to evenly distribute heat; (3) Take the temperature reading to ensure correct injection temperature; (4) Before re-use allow the pot to settle and re-check injection temperature; (5) Pull vacuum on the wax tank to ensure there is no trapped air.
Operation: Where possible keep the pot on continuously at the injection temperature to keep the wax at an even temperature.
Wax Temperature: Have an accurately calibrated thermometer exclusively for your wax pots. Immerse the thermometer into the wax to get an accurate reading.
Injection Pressure: To get the best results set the pressure at the lowest pressure setting. Always clean the nozzle before daily use.
Shutting down at night: Release air pressure. Refill the pot. Ensure pot is left on.
