remanium® – 1935 until today.

The story of the CoCr alloy.

Dentaurum’s product range has changed many times over the last 125 years of company history. Not many dental products have managed to successfully maintain their position in the market over so many decades. remanium® is a product which has continued to advance and develop and has adapted to the technical progress in dental technology. Today the remanium® alloys are amongst the best known dental products in the dental field and look back at a long product history.


The latest technology in computer aided manufacturing of dental restorations is based on powder metallurgy. In contrast to the milling technique, material is not ground away from a solid blank, instead metal powder is built-up, layer by layer, using a laser beam. This method is known as selective laser melting (SLM).

Introduction of micro powder


In 2008 Dentaurum adapted to the shift in paradigm, with regard to manufacturing processes, and introduced remanium® in the form of a milling blank to the market.

Introduction of milling blanks


In 2005 came remanium® secura, an extremely reliable and user-friendly CoCr alloy. In the same year remanium® LFC was introduced into the Dentaurum product range, an alloy which had a thermal expansion equivalent to the high gold content “biocompatible” alloys and could be veneered with the same special ceramic materials.

The crown and bridge alloys were now being produced using the strand casting method. At this time, the new alloy remanium® star was introduced to the product range, a CoCr alloy with a particularly low degree of hardness.

The production methods were changed to strand casting methods for the crown and bridge alloys


The casting alloy remanium® GM 900 was an innovation for dental technology. The titanium and carbon-free casting alloy was characterized by excellent laser melting properties.

Introduction of remanium® GM 900


The introduction of the Medical Device Act in 1995 meant that dental alloys had new legal requirements and specifications, similar to the German Drugs Act. Proof of fulfillment of the requirements was the CE mark, as it is still today. All Dentaurum alloys have had this certificate of conformity since 1.3.1995.

Introduction of the CE specification


In the early 80’s the cobalt chrome partial denture casting alloy was modified so that it could also be used for crowns and bridges and as a metal-ceramic bonding alloy.

In 1985 the melting plant was expanded which enabled the strand casting production method under vacuum and a protective gas.

The remanit cobalt chrome alloy was introduced into the market in 1935 for model casting methods. Back then it already had the basic characteristics and alloy components which can still be found today in the high quality remanium® casting alloys (since 1964).
