B182N is an Ultracast master alloy for 585-750‰ (14-18 Kt) yellow gold jewelry, designed for lost-wax casting in closed systems. B182N has a minimum level of deoxidizers; this makes it suitable for casting in closed systems.
B182N can also be used for mechanical working processes in general. It is suitable for continuous casting and for ingot casting of semi-finished items such as sheet, wire, tube. The main processes in which B182N can be used are stamping, chain making, hollow chain, TIG tube, tube for wedding bands production.
The color of 750‰ gold made using B182N complies with the 2N yellow color definition according to the UNI EN 28654 standard. B182N can also be used in the production of 585‰ gold, where it results in a green-yellow hue.
The hardness of 750‰ gold alloyed with B182N can be moderately increased by means of a heat treatment.
B182N has extremely high shininess and lustrous color after finishing.
