5 Types of Silver Casting Offered at Frank Billanti Casting Co., Manhattan, New York

If you need a sterling silver metal casting or jewelry casting, Frank Billanti Casting Co. in Manhattan is the place you need to go! Offering the best quality of silver for both your jewelry and model making needs, Frank Billanti Casting Co. promises complete customer satisfaction on all of their products. To help you choose the right silver casting, here are some brief descriptions of the five types of sterling that they use on each of their commissions:

Sterling Silver Casting Grain: Made out of 92.5% fine silver and a mixture of alloys, this is the most basic type of silver that they offer. Perfect for jewelry and fabrication applications, this silver has a high luster and is the most affordable of all the precious metals.

Special Silver # 88: This is a proprietary, deoxidized sterling silver created to minimize fire scale and porosity. This sterling silver is softer than the standard type and provides increased tarnish resistance.

Special Silver # 57: This silver was designed to achieve maximum hardness while also minimizing fire scale and porosity. The alloy mixed with this type of Silver contains Germanium. Not only will this type have a hardness equitable to standard sterling silver, but it will also have the increased tarnish resistance in comparison to Special Silver #88 as well.

Silvadium: This is a palladium-based sterling silver which will eliminate fire scale and porosity while also providing excellent tarnish resistance. Silvadium also has a unique premium metallic white color that is sure to draw attention.

Platinet: A proprietary 6.5% platinum-based sterling and the highest quality of all of the types, Platinet was developed to have a hardness exceeding standard sterling silver. It will continue to retain its brilliance and resist tarnish for years after its original casting.
