Osmium is easy to work with if it is set like a diamond on a ring or in a piece of jewellery.
Osmium can also be glued or soldered. When soldering, it is important to stay within a temperature limit of 400 °C to prevent the formation of osmium tetroxide, which is volatile and thus spreads over the air.

When working with osmium, the solder directly reduces the osmium tetroxide back to the element and releases the oxygen. If a pungent smell is noticed, work needs to be suspended and the room needs to be ventilated.

Processing guidelines are found on www.osmium-academy.com. What’s more, virtual classes for sales and manufacturing can be easily attended from home.
