Technique and process

Osmium can be processed and brazed up to a temperature of 500 °C.

The development of osmium tetroxide may occur when the temperature increases. However, the slightly pungent smelling gas is immediately reduced to elemental osmium at the tin solder and the oxygen is released again.

If a pungent smell is noticed, the work must be stopped and the room ventilated.

In most cases, osmium is set or glued.

Osmium can be filed, but being the metal with the highest abrasion resistance, diamond files should be used for this purpose. Please check in the Osmium training to learn which grain sizes are to be used and how osmium can be processed in general.
