The use of environmentally friendly sterling silver formulations has drawn interest from many of their customers, which is why United Precious Metal Refining, Inc. has developed a new product, PLATILITE™. PLATILITE™ is formulated with 2% platinum and 95% fine silver (100% recycled).
United PMR takes recycling, environmental concerns and natural resource sustainability very seriously. This product is not the only example of their commitment to the environment. That commitment is also reflected in other products, as well as in their refining facility and techniques. United PMR is a 100% recycled company certified by SCS. Fine gold and fine silver produced at United PMR is certified to come from 100% recycled sources.
PLATILITE™ is designed to provide defect and fire-scale free castings. The metal can be heat treated to high hardness achieving 90Hv – 100Hv and its high fluidity is excellent for stone-in-place castings. Jewelry made with PLATILITE™ is more dense and heavier when compared to traditional sterling silver and exhibits a bright, metallic white color with high luster after polishing. It is an all purpose formulation which can be used in the fabrication of sheet, wire, and tubing.
