Geo. W. Neale's "Pewter 92," is the standard to which
other alloy manufacturers aspire.
Pewter is an alloy consisting mainly of Tin, with additions of
Copper & Antimony, and is subject to the requirements of BSEN611-1:1995
& British Standard 5140:1974. The quality of the alloying process
is not only governed by mixing the correct proportions of the constituent
metals, but is affected by other factors such as strict temperature
control, grain refining, & pouring techniques. Geo. W. Neale
Ltd. operate the most stringent quality controls during the production
process, and have an unparallelled wealth of experience in producing
the finest alloys.
"Pewter 92" has excellent flow properties, is suitable
for highly detailed castings, and gives a very shiny finish which
can be polished if required.
Being Lead Free, "Pewter 92" is the perfect material
for items in contact with food or drink. It is also the metal of
choice for producers of fantasy figures and toy and game pieces.
As "Pewter 92" is Nickel Free, it conforms to the requirements
of the EU Nickel Directive 94/27/EC, and is ideal for all high class
costume jewellery, especially pieces which remain unplated, such
as "Celtic" jewellery.
