Metallurgical aspects of five commercial Pd-Ag porcelain-bonding alloys have been investigated using X-ray diffraction, light microscopy and X-ray microanalysis. All alloys are mainly single-phase systems, but they appear to be inhomogeneous due to constitutional supercooling. Porcelain firing times are presumably insufficient to reach homogeneity. Two… CONTINUE READING
