How Strong is Gold or Silver? Hydraulic Press Test!

12 000 Views 376K

Which is the strongest jewelry / precious metal? Yellow Gold, White Gold or Silver? How many tons they can take? We are going to test that out with our 150 ton hydraulic press and 150 ton force sensor. And how they rank against metals like Tungsten / wolfram, Magnesium, Bishmuth, Aluminium or Iron?

    Thanks to Kultasepät Andreasen for making the cubes for free to be crushed on the video. And as I mentioned they took them back and you can now order for example gold ring that is made out of crushed HPC gold :D Here is link to their website if you are interested www.andreasen.fi/en/

    Gold is very dense and very malleable. You could probably squish it into a pancake if you wanted

    As it is crushed it actually hardens if I’m not mistaken. It is prone to cracking and becoming a tad brittle but if put in heat and annealed it would be soft again!

    You can compare your results to published data for strength of materials in compression. For instance I found a reference that says the compressive strength of gold varies from 20MPa to 205MPa. 1 MPa is 1 million kg, multiplied by 9.8, divided by the area of compression. For a 10mm cube the data suggests the applied force at ultimate compressive stress should be 2000 to 20,000N, or 204kg to 2004kg, or .2 to 2 metric tons, or 449 to 4490lb. You can get this number for any material, just multiply the strength by the area, that gives you force.
