Spruing: Following the rules for dental applications (see General Instructions for Use)
Investment: Phosphate-bonded investment materials (Cehacast P or Cehacast Speed)
Preheating: 800 °C, 30 to 120 mins until end temperature, depending on size of mould
Casting: 1280 °C, possibly increase by 20°C–30°C for resistance-heated vacuum pressure casting. Graphite crucible or open flame with ceramic crucible.
Finishing: With carbide burs and/or ceramic-bonded stones. Always grind in one direction only! Avoid using high speeds or applying heavy pressure (scale formation); sandblasting with 50–125 µm aluminium oxide. Pressure should not exceed 2 bar
Cleaning: steam jet cleaning or boiled in distilled water
Oxide firing: 5 mins at 940°C without vacuum
Soldering before firing: Orplid Ceramic solder 1020
Soldering after firing: Orplid solders 760, 735
Firing: For normally expanding ceramic materials (e.g. CeHa WHITE® Classic)
