Economical and user-friendly
Schaan, Liechtenstein - 07 May 2009
The new Colado CC cobalt-chromium alloy is an economical alternative to precious metal alloys. It is also characterized by its particularly user-friendly properties.
Colado CC is a precious metal-free cobalt-chromium alloy especially suitable for ceramic and composite veneers. Given the ideally coordinated composition, Colado CC is an economical alternative to precious metal alloys. With Colado CC, Ivoclar Vivadent offers a tried-and-tested high-quality cobalt-chromium alloy of the latest generation.
An alloy is only as good as its processing properties. Due to its composition, Colado CC features ideal physical properties and provides convenient handling. For example, Colado CC can be cast with all customary casting devices, as well as with the flame, thanks to its excellent melting properties. Moreover, the homogeneous microstructure facilitates further processing and facilitates polishing. Oxide firing is not required, even though it is recommended to check the quality of the alloy surface. The optimized coefficient of thermal expansion permits normal cooling; long-term cooling is only recommended for massive long-span bridges and ceramic shoulders.
