The purpose of this study was to evaluate the chemical bond strength of successively recast Pd-Ag ceramic alloys with porcelain and to investigate changes of quantity of trace elements at the metal-porcelain interface. Porcelain was fired as usual manner on the each successively recast specimen. Rectangular planar shear test was performed and bond strength was measured by Instron universal testing machine. Diffusion of trace elements at the each interface was observed by ESCA (Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis). The obtained results were as follows : 1. Chemical bond strength was significantly decreased after second recasting. But in case of first recasting, there was no significant decrease of bond strength statistically (p<0.05). 2. Bond strength was not significantly decreased in each generation, when fifty percents new alloy was added (p<0.05). 3. Ag, Sn and In were observed at the porcelain interface. But Pd was not observed. 4. The quantity of Ag, In ions were progressively increased at the metal-porcelain interface as the casting was repeated. Silver ion was most significantly increased.
