The direct contact between amalgam and cast metal may enhance electrochemical reactions. In a study to determine the amount of mercury released in these reactions, six cast metal alloys with increasing precious metal contents were placed in immediate contact (contact area 10 mm2) to two non-gamma 2-amalgams (Amalcap, Valiant) and incubated with artificial… CONTINUE READING
