Hoover & Strong, Richmond, Va., recently introduced a new 18k white alloy designed to enhance the workability of the metal and make it more ductile and malleable. The new alloy is available for same-day shipping in casting grain, next-day shipping in sheet and bezel strip, selected round wire, sizing wire, square wire, and half-round wire sizes. The full range of mill products is available at special-order rates plus delivery. All Hoover & Strong findings previously available in the "old" formula alloy have been replaced with the new 18k white alloy formula. For casters who desire the whiteness of the original alloy, Hoover & Strong still offers the old formula, now know as 18k Brilliant White Gold, in casting grain (stock #18H GR) only.
