ADRIAN ALEXANDRU, RAMONA CIMPOESU, ANCA MELIAN, MIHAELA SALCEANU STUDY ON THE BEHAVIOR OF DENTAL ALLOY COCRWNBMOV IN ARTIFICIAL SALIVA
Dental materials represent an important market worldwide. For solutions that are currently financially acceptable, CoCr or CoCrMo alloys have been an affordable option for all dental technicians. Constant improvements in the properties of this alloy such as corrosion resistance and hardness have been pursued. In this paper are presented some experimental results obtained from the electro-corrosion resistance analysis of the CoCrWNbMoV alloy in two electrolyte solutions made from artificial saplings Afnor and respectively Duffo Quezada. Following electro-corrosion resistance tests, the surface of the alloy was characterized by optical and electron microscopy (OM and SEM) and chemical dispersion X-ray (EDS) analysis.
