PMC+ Technical Information

Work, roll, cut, shape and fire versatile PMC+™ like clay. After firing, it comes out of your kiln as a pure fine-silver object. PMC+ shrinks less and has a stronger molecular bond than original formula PMC®. It fires at a lower temperature, allowing you to combine sterling findings with your PMC+ before firing. PMC+ is suitable for torch-firing as well as kiln-firing.

Create jewelry, beads, components—anything you can do with clay, you can do with PMC®!
