About This Item


Full Description

This specification is for alloys, composed mainly of silver, tin and/or copper, used in the preparation of dental amalgam. Only capsulated alloy is covered under this specification.

When a capsule containing mercury and alloy is shaken, the mercury and alloy react to form the metal-matrix composite called dental amalgam. Dental amalgam is designed for use in dentistry as a restorative material for decayed, fractured or eroded teeth.
