Laminating Platinum


#1

I’ve written to a few prominent metalsmiths on this question and
have received no response. Now I’ll try this forum.

My question is this: Is there a better way, other than hard solder,
of laminating a sheet of 18ga. platinum and 18ga. 18ky?

This laminate is going to have to take a lot of abuse and
manipulation, so I don’t want any separation. Any help would be
appreciated.

Thank you, Dna

I suspect you’ll get a better more durable bond via diffusion
bonding, as done for mokume lamination. Talk to Jim Binnion about
this. he’s used platinum in his mokume billets with good results.
