The "G" material, which consist of gold to interpenetrate the remaining spaces in the platinum/palladium mesh forming a uniquely designed skeleton of strong, stable platinum/palladium particles that support the gold. Finally, a proprietary bonder is applied to the coping creating a perfect background for porcelain that looks vital and naturally blends in.
