Using Pressure Pots to Cast Our Trophies

Recently I purchased a 15 gallon pressure pot so that we could finally fit the large Throwback inside of it.  About a year I decided to pressurize the Mini trophies because too many air bubbles were forming in various spots.  By adding pressure to the casts while they’re curing, a better, more detailed trophy cast can be achieved.  You see, small air bubbles form inside of the resin while it’s mixed and then they are transferred to the cast when the resin is poured inside of the mold.  The pressure, sometimes up to 60 psi., squeezes out all of these bubbles and forces them t escape to the top of the trophy.  Another benefit to pressurizing the trophies is that the molds will not tear or break down as fast because there is less chance they’ll be damaged on the sharp edges of a cast air bubble.  Anyone that knows casting resin understands what I’m talking about.  All you other people just trust me that you’re receiving the best hand-made trophy you can find.  After all, at FantasyTrophies.com it’s about producing the best quality fantasy sports trophy possible.
