I have heard about 18KW alloy without Ni, Pd (For casting) for a
long time But I can't find the place to buy it. Does anyone know
about it? and any suggestions?
Hi Karan, My understanding is that there is nickle in darn near
everything but I have not had anyone clients have sensitivity
problems with 18k palladium white like they do the 18k nickle white.
Plus, its much easier to work with as it is softer, solders easier,
tumble finishes better. It needs to be cast at a higher temp
though and it was recommended to me that it be cast in least one
ounce ammounts to avoid overheating the metal. I use an 18k
palladium white alloy that I get from. Their number is
1-877-798-5060, website is www.imperialproducts.com. They are a
really supportive company with great technical support if you run
into problems with anything. They also make a great heat treatable
alloy of platinum 950 that is easy to work with and can be age
hardened to a vickers of 380! Darn springy stuff! This process is
also totally reversible and can be done multiple times too.
