Wall Colmonoy Limited, Pontardawe, Wales, UK, has launched a new range of Wallex® Cobalt Chromium powders and cast discs for the dental industry. The Wallex Cobalt Chromium powders for Additive Manufacturing are said to be ideal for dental implants, partial denture, and prosthetics, due to its biocompatibility, strength, and wear resistance.

Wallex Cobalt Chromium powders are available in three main chemistries: CoCrMo, CoCrW, and CoCrMoW. Manufactured in a dedicated alloy processing cell in Wall Colmonoy’s UK facility, the powders are reported to offer excellent flowability and be perfectly spherical.

The company explains that the powders are characterised as offering high particle-density and are nickel-free, with very low oxide content. In addition, the raw materials are sourced from ethical suppliers and atomised using renewable energy.

Wallex Cobalt Chromium Dental Discs are also produced in the UK facility, drawing upon fifty years of casting expertise. Its latest range of dental discs have a very fine microstructure, which enhances machineability and extends tool life.

Wall Colmonoy has also developed a powder/binder composite that can be used to produce “Soft-Block” technology, a much softer form of dental disc, that is pre-sintered before it is machined and sintered again at full temperature.
