YX Noble Alloy


AURIDENT’s YX is a noble, fine-grain, type IV crown and bridge gold alloy. With 2% gold, 40% palladium and 25.4% silver, YX is a cost-effective alternative to higher gold content alloys. YX is easy to cast and work with; extremely tarnish resistant; and produces castings with an esthetic, soft yellow color. Its low specific gravity allows a greater number of units per ounce and its high strength is suitable for multi-unit bridges. YX is copper free, making it an excellent alloy choice for patients with allergy concerns.
