Plate & Strip
‘Plate’ refers to flat sheets in shapes such as rectangles or squares which are most commonly used for cutting or piercing shapes and patterns out of, or shaping into things such as cups bowls domes and settings. The procedure for forming plate from ingots is very exact and has evolved over the years to give superior finishing and polishing qualities.
‘Strip’ is plate that is generally longer than it is wide. Strip is commonly used for stamping and pressing applications, although it can be used in hand made jewellery manufacturing for various applications. Strip has exceptional finishing properties and general work-ability.
Strip is rolled from plate or wire and most is available in Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium although many other alloy combinations may be available on request. We fabricate all Plate & Strip products at our own premises.
We have a complete range of alloys and have developed specific alloys for specific applications. Please discuss your requirements with us so we can make the best recommendation. Plate Sizes are totally flexible though our standard widths are 150mm wide x 600mm long for Silver and Gold alloys. Thickness range from 0.2mm thick up to 6.0mm thick. Platinum and Palladium is also available in most commonly used sizes.
