W-1

Pd (53.3%)-based dental metal-ceramic alloy, Type 4

W-1 is a classical, palladium-based ceramic alloy, compatible with conventional metal-ceramics. Its mechanical properties and easy processing allow a wide range of indications.

Indications*

  • Onlays, ¾ crowns, crowns
  • Telescope crowns, conus crowns
  • Bridges
  • Wide-span bridges
  • Cast posts / cores, bars, attachments
  • Partial dentures
