Its copper-free formulation preserves marginal integrity and ensures soldering ease. Both tarnish- and c

Degussa Corporation`s Dental Division introduces No-Vel™, a new noble, micro-fine grain, palladium-silver alloy for ceramics. The alloy was developed specifically to accommodate higher-expansion dental porcelains, which tend to discolor in the presence of silver oxide. This unique, patented formulation is compatible with most dental porcelains and will not contaminate the furnace muffle. Its copper-free formulation preserves marginal integrity and ensures soldering ease. Both tarnish- and corrosion-resistant, the high mechanical strength of No-Vel™ alloy makes it suitable for both single crowns and long-span bridgework.
