PMC Gold Technical Information

This 22-karat gold variety is the strongest PMC® material made (as strong as 18K gold) and provides the color and value of high-karat gold with a toughness usually found only in lower karats. Its workability is much like PMC3™; it is water soluble and re-usable. Suitable for torch- or kiln-firing. After firing, refine it as you would any gold.
