Melting SP's formula would only help Spectrum in a limited way. It would have to be melted hotter and longer. It would need to be melted in the end users furnace hotter and longer as well. Materials used are still based on shipping costs from mine to factory. I don't know what is and isn't attractive there. I would think that the end product would have to cost a good deal more than the current Spectrum products for the aforementioned reasons. The SP chips were totally fined out as a product which made melting in the studio a total dream. The Spectrum nuggets had yet to complete their chemical reaction when they hit the end user which is a good part of the corrosion issue.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
