Amalgam has been a part of the dentist’s armoury of materials for more than a century now, and since 1930 it’s been a part of the basic product assortment of Cavex too. Millions of fillings worldwide prove daily the durability and high quality of Cavex amalgams in the dental practice. For dental use only. Cavex has developed an amalgam for the generations to come. Cavex amalgam has already proved its reliability, practicality and wear-resistance in dental practice for decades. Now, thanks to the new self-activating and reclosable capsule, Cavex amalgams offer optimum safety too -both during and after mixing. Cavex amalgams avoid the corrosion-sensitive gamma-2 phase, which means they can be used to produce lasting restorations with a permanent sheen. Shortly: a safe product for a new future.

It’s all a question of getting the metals in the right proportion, which is where great progress has been made in recent times. In a modern amalgam alloy the copper content is considerably increased, up to a level at which the formation of the corrosionsensitive and mechanically...
