“On virtually every drop of


the five drops, the investment cast mask scored anywhere from 25-30 percent lower on the severity index,” Pizzuti said. “Lower is better, and it means less energy is being transferred to the head and ultimately the brain of the wearer.” Tis spring, the masks took a


step towards seeing the field in the NFL and college football when two models achieved certifica- tion from the National Operat- ing Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE). Tey were expected to hit the market in June, and samples have been sent to some collegiate and professional teams. “We should see them on the


field this year,” Pizzuti said. Though the NFL and NCAA


have concerns the masks are overbuilt–a classification that would prohibit their use–Singer hopes the institutions will see the potential benefits of the cast masks designed by Pizzuti and cast by Acra Cast. “Tings have to be done dif-


ferently and they have to embrace new technologies and new meth- ods of manufacturing,” Singer said. Tat sounds like something Pamela Pizzuti would say. 


Investment casting is used to produce the face masks.


The finished product can come in many different powder coats.
