A new, high-gold-content coating from Degussa-Ney Dental, Inc. provides a warm gold color to palladium and palladium-silver alloys. Applied as a thin top coat, the coating is effective in offsetting dark gingival margins typical of palladium and palladium-silver alloys.
Deckgold NF coating material is compatible with all commercial alloys and works efficiently with low- and high-expansion porcelains. Its low-firing temperature and improved binder properties represents a major improvement over Blendgold.
Designed for good flow characteristics, Deckgold NF coating material is easy to apply and affords the technician a convenient method of achieving luminescent-porcelain margins.
