Zortrax Introduces Specialized Biocompatible Resins for End-Use Models in Dentistry
The newly announced resins are Raydent Crown & Bridge, which is used for printing temporary crowns and bridges, and Raydent Surgical Guide for 3D printing surgical guides.
July 8, 2019
Zortrax is introducing specialized biocompatible resins that are optimized for the Inkspire 3D printer.
The newly announced resins are Raydent Crown & Bridge, which is used for printing temporary crowns and bridges, and Raydent Surgical Guide for 3D printing surgical guides. The former is class IIa biocompatible, making it safe for contact with human tissue for up to 30 days. It is available
in an A2 shade (beige). High abrasion resistance guarantees permanent smooth surfaces and anatomical shape throughout its use.
Raydent Surgical Guide is intended for 3D printing precise prosthetic surgical guides. Class I biocompatibility makes it safe for transient contact with human tissue, which is enough to carry out procedures commonly performed in modern dentistry. Surgical guides made of this resin are translucent to ensure visibility. High dimensional accuracy guarantees precise placement of implants or guidance for tools used by a dentist. Low viscosity and water resistance, on the other hand, make the 3D printed guides easy to wash.
Zortrax Inkspire 3D printer has a workspace of 74x132x175 mm, its XY resolution is 50x50 microns while the minimum layer height is 25 microns. Two new biocompatible resins allow Zortrax Inkspire to now be used by prosthetic laboratories not only in prototyping but also in fabrication of final products meant for intraoral use by patients.
Zortrax offers 3D printing solutions, with dedicated filaments, Z-SUITE software and additional devices. The company is based in Poland.
