This dead-soft, 12/20 yellow gold-filled half-round wire offers a flat surface that makes it great for wire-wrapping on flat components and helps makes soldering more effective while presenting a round profile in your designs. The wire is great for creating loops, links and jump rings that have a flat inner surface. Dead soft wire is easy to bend, shape and hammer; it is an ideal starting point for forming, shaping and wire-wrapping. Keep in mind that hardness is changeable (by annealing or heat-hardening) and is relative among metal types (each temper will feel and handle differently from one metal to another). When finishing your pieces, also keep in mind that the harder the metal is, the brighter a finish it will take.
This gold-filled wire is packaged in coils and can be cut to any length that satisfies the system minimum. Orders must weigh at least 0.01 ozt.; if you click "Add to Cart" for a quantity less than this, the cart will offer a prompt to let you know what the minimum for this item is.
Gold-filled materials allow you to design and fabricate using the desirable color of karat gold while preserving a more affordable price point than is possible with solid gold. Its economical cost allows a greater latitude for trying out new designs or creating lines of fashion jewelry items.
• Customers within the European Union: Please be aware that all gold-filled materials sold by Rio Grande are in compliance with EU regulation EN1811:2011.
• We strive to measure quantities ordered as closely as possible; however, due to manufacturing tolerances at the mill, please allow for a ±10% variance when ordering.
• Because of its temper, dead soft gold-filled sheet will present a somewhat less reflective surface than do harder tempers.
