Phoenix N Handling Instructions

Product Description

Pd-based, Type 4, metal-ceramic dental alloy.

PXN Handling Instructions


Before modifying the surface with any grinding, sandblast the part with non-recycled 50–100-micron AL2O3 at a maximum of 65 psi pressure. Avoid inhalation of dust! The surface must be clean of any potential contaminants before modification.

ONLY AREAS IN NEED OF ADJUSTING NEED METAL FINISHING. The entire surface does not require refinishing.

Perform desired finishing with dedicated carbide burs or non-contaminating stones such as grinding instruments categorized as non-contaminating, having ceramic binderss. ALL OTHER SURFACES CAN BE SANDBLASTED. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO PERFORM TRADITIONAL METAL FINISHING ACROSS THE ENTIRE SURFACE.

When finishing steps are completed, sandblast the entire surface using non-recycled 50–100-micron AL2O3 at a maximum of 75 psi pressure. Using steam or ultrasonic methods, clean the framework with distilled water or ethanol and allow it to dry.


Clean using distilled H2O in an ultrasonic, or steam clean and dry the part free from any water residue. Place the framework on firing trays providing stable support. Do not touch the dried surface. Begin firing at 540C/1000F, increasing the temperature to 950C/1740F without vacuum with a 1-minute hold at the high temperature.


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.

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

Consultation with a physician is recommended for patients with known allergy/sensitivity to any major or minor constituents of this alloy. This material is not recommended for any application not within the indications listed.

Side Effects

In individual cases, sensitivity, or allergies to components of this alloy may occur. Strategy Milling makes no claims regarding the MRI compatibility of its dental alloys. The patient must be made aware of the possibility that dental alloys may affect MRI results and disclose the presence of dental alloys to the MRI Technician before tests are performed.


Galvanic effects may occur between different alloys in the same oral environment.


Vapors and metal dust are harmful if inhaled. Please use extraction equipment and PPE when working with this material.


This material has been developed solely for use in dentistry. Processing should be carried out strictly according to the Instructions for Use.
