Dear Engr. Nathaniel Oliveros,


Thank you for your request dated Dec 27, 2017 10:53:54 PM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for list and price of equipment of tool and die casting, specific for bronze medal.

Response to Request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide the information you have requested because die casting of bronze products is not advisable since it requires high melting temperature which may cause heat cracking on the die. Normally, die casting is suited and economical for aluminum, zinc and magnesium alloys because of their low melting temperature. We recommend investment casting process for the manufacture of bronze medals.
