G'day JoAnna. Before I can give you any help on your DE-OX Silver I
must have the chemical composition. As a Material Scientist (
Metallurgist ) I need to know what the De-ox is made of. As in, what
Percentage Silver, What Percentage other components. With this
Knowledge I can tell you if you are stuck with a brittle material or
what to do with it. In most countries suppliers must on request,
supply you with Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS). This will give
you a chemical composition of your product.
One Interesting bit of Information Sterling Silver Must contain 92.5
Silver and the rest Copper. If De-Ox Silver doe's not comply with
the above then according to the Law you can not Hall Mark It
Sterling Silver as the Law States Sterling is 92.5 % Silver and 7.5
Please Do not Hesitate to contact me at.
