Videos: Bond Integrity Test

The video on this page illustrates the strength and integrity of the bond created between three layers of metal by the FusionForged® process. In this case, the layers consist of:

  • Outer layer: 14 karat white gold
  • Center core: Sterling Silver
  • Inner layer: 14 karat yellow gold
  1. The test begins by stretch sizing the ring up three full sizes, from Finger Size 12 to Finger Size 15.
  2. The ring is then cut with a slotting saw, and opened out into a flat strip.
  3. Next, the ring (now a strip) is further flattened with a rolling mill.
  4. Finally, the strip is twisted 360 degrees into a spiral helix.

 Examination of the bonded layers shows no evidence of separation.
