Abstract:

Studies have been continued which test the feasibility of using metal films, deposited by chemical or electroless processes, for use in various areas of the military dental program. Advances during the past year include 1 improved methods for examining metal deposits using the SEM, 2 additional characterization of metal film - tooth interfaces by means of ESCA, 3 film thickness evaluations and their correlation to X-ray intensities, 4 improved methods for shear testing, and 5 preliminary evaluation of chemical tests of plating processes on primates.
