Continum C... the next generation of ceramic casting alloys; providing technicians perfect castings, lighter oxides and improved bond strength.
Continum C delivers a perfected 14.3 coefficient of thermal expansion, a balanced titanium addition, and higher chromium (15%) for improved corrosion resistance. Continum C’s corrosion resistance exceeds the requirements of ISO 22674.
Continum C’s coefficient of thermal expansion is optimized for major porcelain brands such as Ceramco, Noritake as well as other commercial medium-grain porcelains. Degassing Continum is not required, saving technicians valuable time. Continum C’s titanium (Ti) acts as an oxygen scavenger, reaching out and chemically bonding with the feldspar (SiO2) and kaolin (K2O), found in all dental porcelains; enhancing bond strength. Titanium also yields improved anti-greening properties for more esthetic restorations.
Aalba Dent’s proprietary continuous casting technology yields an essentially gas free alloy with unparalleled homogeneity and precise alloy chemistry.
When only the best will do... use Continum C.
Porcelain fused to metal (PFM), single units, long-span multiple unit bridgework, maryland bridge, metal substructure for polymer resins (acrylic & composites), full cast crowns, implant superstructures.
Continum C performs best with traditional medium grain porcelains: Ceramco, Spectrum, Noritake, Synspar, Shofu-halo, as well as other commercially available medium-grain porcelains.
