Requirements of a good inlay wax

·       Can flow easily when heated, without chipping, flaking, or losing its smoothness
·       Rigid when cool
·       Can be carved precisely without chipping, distorting or smearing
·       Colour must contrast with the stone die (Blue, red, green)

Wax is thermoplastic => distortion!!! ---- How to control?

The wax pattern should be stored on the lubricated die and invested as soon as possible after fabrication.
