Our state-of-the-art, climate controlled 32,000+ square foot manufacturing facility is located in Middlefield, Ohio. It was designed and built in 2012 specifically for the production of our quality mineral castings.
Bases are manufactured of Zanite® Plus, a proprietary polymer concrete material which is a blend of pure silicon dioxide, ceramic quartz aggregate and high strength epoxy resins. BaseTek bases deliver a solid, unmatched surface flatness, and provide increased physical properties that surpass lower grade vinyl ester composites and fiberglass. They are corrosion resistant and offer higher tensile, flexural, and compression strength than vinyl ester. Our Zanite® Plus is continually tested to insure BaseTek is associated with the best materials on the market today. Our properties are randomly tested for full compliance and exceed all published specifications.
BaseTek incorporates the latest casting technologies and can aid in the development of tooling and part design thru modern in-house CAD capability including Solid Modeling and sophisticated Finite Element Analysis software. Wood molds are built quickly and economically in our pattern shop and in-house painting is available but not required. Our inspection department utilizes the latest CMM software and equipment to document and insure your castings meet all required specifications.
