What exactly is technibond?


Answer by  epglaw (553)

Technibond is a plating process designed to lower the cost of buying gold jewelry. It has 40 mm of 18 karat Gold bonded to Sterling Silver. It is only sold by the Home Shopping Network or at its website. With each item purchased, you receive a lifetime manufacturer's warranty against damage to the complete piece, including plating and stones.

WRONG thickness. 40 mm is a little more than 1.500"; may be the plating is 40 mills, or 1 micron millimeter.  add a comment

Do you mean 4mm? 40 millimeters is something like two inches  add a comment

I purchased a Technibond necklace from HSN, it broke. HSN replaced it and had me send the broken one back to them. A few weeks later the replacement broke and upon contact HSN refuses to replace it. They say I am to receive a refund and then repurchase????????????????  add a comment

Technibond is a brand name of jewelry sold on home shopping networks. Technibond refers to its namesake process of bonding a thin layer of precious metal over a base of semi-precious metal.

Techinbond is not a bonding process but an electro-plating process, relatively inexpensive, just a wash of gold over sterling silver.  add a comment

Technibond jewelry which is sold on the Home Shopping Channel, used a method which "bonds" real gold or platinum to sterling silver. It is supposed to look like the real thing and sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't.

Technibond is a line of jewelry that is rather frequently advertised on the Home Shopping Network (HSN). It combines two metals together to make the jewelry shown. The metals that seem to be commonly combined are gold and silver, but occassionallly, platinum is also used in the jewelry, making a "unique" finish.

Technibond is a jewelry plating process, exclusive to the Home Shopping Network. A layer of 14K gold, which is 40 micrometers thick, is applied over sterling silver to create the look of gold jewelry at a lower cost.

Like plating, technibond fuses a thin layer of gold or platinum onto another metal, like silver. Technibond is a registered trademark of the Home Shopping Network.
