Abstract: The corrosion of carved, burnished, polished, and burnished--polished samples of a conventional spherical amalgam was studied by anodic polarization in Ringer's solution. The effect of the variation of the mercury content from 40 to 60 wt% on the corrosion of burnished or polished samples was also investigated. It was found that burnished and burnished--polished samples corrode the least and carved samples the most. The current-density peak associated with gamma2 was of greater magnitude in polished specimens …
