Gold Fill is a layer of gold physically bonded by heat and pressure to another layer of metal normally brass. The layer of gold is much thicker than a normal electroplated coating. Gold fill is usually referred to by numbers ie 14/20 or 12/20. The first number is the carat of the gold layer, the second refers to the amount by weight of the gold in relation to the base layer. In these examples the gold layer is 1/20th or 5% by weight. Because of the manufacturing process of Gold Fill it limits the type of components that can be made. For instance the material cannot be cast since melting it would destroy the layers, therefore the range of findings is more limited than carat gold.
