Abstract

Tensile tests and static fracture toughness tests were conducted on dental type 4 gold alloys subjected to various heat treatments. The effects of microstructures on tensile characteristics and static fracture toughness are discussed. The tensile strength of dental type 4 gold alloy increases with the solutionizing temperature. Moreover, the tensile strength of dental type 4 gold alloy increases with aging time at a solutionizing temperature of 1023 K. On the other hand, dental type 4 gold alloy exhibits reduced elongation with an increase in the solutionizing temperature. Static fracture toughness of dental type 4 gold alloy increases with an increase in the solutionizing temperature. Static fracture toughness of dental type 4 gold alloy aged for 0.3 ks is the highest, and is the lowest when it is aged for 1.8 ks, with the solutionizing temperature at 1023 K.
