Passive cemented cast-gold posts with patented diamond retention design. Strengthened surface, optimal strength and fracture protection (Single use). Composition: (39% Pt, Au 10%, Pd 26%, Ag 24.5%).
• Patented raised diamond-shape retention pattern
• Parallel-sided posts
• Multiple venting channels
The retention pattern has been cold-formed: the grain structure is uninterrupted following the retention pattern with no evidence of recrystallization after the core has been cast to the post. Result: Increased strength and resistance to fracture. The retention grooves have been machined: the grain structure is interrupted with initial signs of recrystallization after the core has been cast to the post. Result: Reduced strength and resistance to fracture.
