Ney Dental International`s Research Department introduces Excel, a yellow, high-noble (82 percent gold, 15 percent platinum) alloy formulated with a very low non-noble content. Excel is designed for use with premium fine-grain porcelains, such as Excelco`s Porcelfina and Opalfina. This alloy also is copper- and palladium-free, so it is suitable for patients where sensitivity issues are a concern.
Excel features a yield strength of 87,000 psi so it can be used in long-span restorations. The light gold oxide of Excel allows ceramists to achieve unequaled porcelain aesthetics. The coefficient of thermal expansion is an optimal 14.2, making it compatible with most porcelains, including the new low-fusing, low-expansion systems. Excel is available in convenient 30 gram packages.
