About This Clinic

Turning to non-precious alloys to offset the higher cost of precious and noble alloys is making a huge comeback in laboratories. However, choosing the right non-precious alloy requires an understanding of the basics of base metals. Dr. Roland Strietzel and Martin Schmid, CDT, cover corrosion, bond strength, biocompatibility, production methods and technical tips. Learn how non-precious alloys can offer both higher profits and increased quality in your C&B department.
