2014 - Mokume Gane Bonds: The Effect of Quenching on Bond Strengths

0.00

Mokume gane is a seventeenth century Japanese metal-working technique, in which three or more layers of metal are permanently joined in alternating layers to form a stack or billet. In recent decades it has been re-introduced as a jewelry art form. The metals can be difficult to bond and work. This paper examines the relationship between water quenching and air cooling to find an answer to which cooling method provides the best material suitable for manufacture into finished jewelry items.
