Daniel and Jurgen discuss platinum alloys – Part 1

Video Details

One fine day at Fine Gold in Ontario, CA, Daniel Ballard (PMWest) and Jurgen Maerz (Dir technical education- Platinum Guild) were doing some test castings at Fine Gold. They were both doing “high speed” three hour wax to cast work. But a two hour burnout still leaves some downtime. So Jurgen and Daniel decided to have an informal chat expressing personal opinions on Platinum alloys and rhodium plating. We just had to put that on tape. It ran long enough to split into two parts for easy viewing on the web. Great information presented for your education. Anyone curious about platinum alloys should see this.
