2011 - Platinum Solders: Proper Use and Application in Jewelry Making

0.00

There are several different kinds of platinum solders in use today. Some contain up to 95% platinum, others contain no platinum at all. Each vendor tries to have their own mix, but in principle platinum solders are all pretty much the same except for some minor content variations. They are divided into traditional solders and plumb solders. In this paper I will explain the different types of solders, discuss the proper solder for the application, be it sizing, fabrication or assembly. Safety and eye protection will be covered as well as solders used in the U.S. and abroad. Detailed information on when to solder, when to weld, soldering picks, soldering techniques, torch use, fuels, and flames will be shared. The use of video clips makes the presentation lively, interesting and eductional.
