Silver PMC+ Sheet 6 cm x 6 cm 5 Grams


PMC+ paper is a thin flexible sheet

PMC+ paper is a thin, flexible sheet that allows you the creative freedom to fold, form, onlay, weave or decorate. After firing, it comes out of your kiln as a pure fine-silver object. Each sheet has a thickness of .01" (30 ga.) before firing and is about .009" thick after firing.  PMC+ 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.

How to Use PMC+ Sheet

Basic Forming
You can cut PMC Sheet with scissors or razor knife, or tear it to achieve a ragged edge. You can even draw pencil lines to determine the shapes you want. Join elements by using PMC paste like a glue to make thicker sheets, moisten two pieces lightly with clean water, press the sheets firmly together and set a weight on top until the joint seats. PMC Sheet has the same shrinkage arid firing specifications as other versions of PMC+, but it will not dry out as fast, It can be combined with original PMC, but remember to adjust for the different rates of shrinkage.
Firing
Time Temperature
10 minutes 900? centigrade 1650? Fahrenheit
20 minutes 850? centigrade 1560? Fahrenheit
30 minutes 800? centigrade 1470? Fahrenheit
Dont torch fire!
PMC can be tired in any kiln that will hold the correct temperature for the required time. A small programmable kiln is ideal. Set the work on ceramic bisque tiles, soft brick, or soldering pads. Irregular shapes should be supported on alumina hydrate or vermiculite (avoid breathing any fine dust).

Finishing
After firing, all versions of PMC display a matte white surface. To polish, burnish with a smooth steel tool or scrub with fine wool or soft brass Brush. PMCSheet, like other versions, can be soldered, plated and enameled.

Health and Safety
Though rare, it is possible for certain individuals to experience skin rash or itchiness after contact with PMC. If you have a reaction, discontinue use. Consult a physician if the problem persists. Wash Hands after use.
