SMCeram786 Handling Instructions

FIRST sandblast the part with non-recycled 50-100 micron AL2O3 at max. 5.2 bar/75 psi pressure. Avoid inhalation of dust!

ONLY THE AREAS WHICH NEED ADJUSTING NEED METAL FINISHING.

Perform that finishing with dedicated burs or non-contaminating stones. ALL OTHER SURFACES CAN SIMPLY BE SANDBLASTED. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO PERFORM TRADITIONAL METAL FINISHING ACROSS THE ENTIRE SURFACE.

When finishing steps are completed, sandblast the surface using non-recycled 50-100 micron AL2O3 at max. 5.2 bar / 75 psi pressure.


Oxidation

Clean using distilled H2O in an ultrasonic, or steam clean and dry the part free from any water residue. Do not touch the dried surface. Oxidize at 950°C (1740°F) for 1 minute without vacuum.

Opague
The first layer of opaque MUST BE A VERY THIN WASH COAT as seen below. Failure to perform this step as described is a likely cause of bubble formation at later stages. Ideal opaque coverage may require three applications. Follow this with standard body and incisal porcelain application and glazing.

Solders and Fluxes

Design the soldering patty as small as possible and preheat it in the furnace at approximately 600°C/1112°F. The soldering gap should be the same thickness as the soldering strip. Allow the object to cool slowly after soldering.

Pre-Solder
Spartan Solder, Special High Fusing White Ceramic Solder, High-Fusing Bondal Flux

Post-Solder
.615 Fine Solder, Low Fusing White Gold Solder, .585 Fine Solder, Bondal Flux

Laser weld material
Laser Ceramic White


Polishing

After glazing remove oxide and flux residue and finish/polish the framework with rubber finishers/polishers.
