How much does ZA8 shrink during solidification?

Post by dorin » Tue Jul 28, 2020 6:34 am

I am not even sure of the right terms here, but was wondering how much bigger my pattern has to be for casing ZA8?
I have heard somewhere 2% bigger to handle shrinkage during the casting process, but I can't find that number anywhere now.
Has anybody experience with ZA8?
Thank you,
Mike
