The color of 585‰ gold made using C14VN shows a light yellow hue.
The hardness of 585‰ gold alloyed with C14VN can be greatly increased by means of a heat treatment.
C14VN has a high level of deoxidizers; this makes it suitable for casting in closed and open systems. During melting it is clean from dirt and leaves minimum residue in the crucible.
C14VN offers excellent fluidity in casting; the as-cast tree is clean from oxide scales; it has extremely high shininess and lustrous color after finishing.
