Ag-Pd alloys for resin-bonded retainers

Academic Article


  • A method for electrolytically etching silver-palladium alloys has been investigated. All the alloys included in the study responded quite favorably to the process. Bond strength values were determined for a composite-resin luting agent as well as a laboratory-cured composite-resin veneer. Bond strengths for the various Ag-Pd alloys in conjunction with the resin-bonding agent ranged from approximately 8-15 MPa. Values for the light-cured composite-resin veneer ranged from 5.5-12.0 MPa. © 1986 Munksgaard International Publishers Ltd.
