Callisto® CPG features a low density of 9.3, enabling laboratories to process more units at lower fabrication costs. Callisto® CPG is a cobalt-chrome-based ceramic alloy containing palladium and gold that demonstrates excellent physical properties. With high strength values, it is ideally suited for layering and press techniques.

Callisto® CPG can be used for onlays, crowns, 3/4 crowns, ceramic crowns, short- and long-span bridges, telescope and conus crowns, root canal posts, implant superstructures, partial dentures and model casting. Callisto® CPG is also compatible with the most popular veneering ceramics and is free of silver, copper, nickel and beryllium.
