Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Casting Forum Lost Foam Metal
Casting information webpage:
'Lost Foam Casting is a relatively new casting process compared to
other metal casting procedures that date far back into antiquity. The
first patent for Lost Foam Casting was made in 1958 but it was not
until 1964 that what we know commonly as Lost Foam Casting was
Lost Foam Casting is a form of Investment Casting much like Lost Wax
Casting. The key material of Lost Foam Casting is of course foam which
is not used in other metal casting methods. The use of foam has many
benefits to the artisan like ease of use and shaping and the relative
inexpensive cost of the material. Each casting is going to be one of a
kind since the original casting of foam is lost during the process.
The foam original will be replaced by the molten metal unlike the Lost
Wax Casting where a wax mold is made of the original and then coated
with a ceramic shell in preparation for the molten metal.'
