Italian term or phrase: gesso Au-Ag
From a document about machines and devices in a Precious metals laboratory:
Miscelatore per ***gesso Au-Ag***
Miscelatore che consente di miscelare il rivestimento per fusione eliminando la presenza gassosa, degassando i componenti prima di unirli e successivamente lavorandoli sottovuoto.

Could anyone please help me understand the meaning of gesso here? Gypsum/plaster/chalk/cast? I've tried all of them on Google but can't find anything that looks right. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Asker: Thank you, I had indeed missed the "alloy" part in all my research! It's all becoming clearer now...
