Organic, Inorganic and Polymer Materials for Dental Applications

Dental applications require high-quality materials that are biocompatible, wear-resistant and durable. Restorative dental materials must withstand the adverse conditions of the oral environment for optimal performance. The selection of monomers, initiators, crosslinkers, ionomers and additives impacts longevity, mechanical characteristics and ultimately the performance of the end product. The quality of dental materials is highly dependent on the monomers and starting materials used in their polymerization and formulation.

We offer a selection of high-purity monomers and starting materials for a wide range of dental applications. Our dedication and innovation assist your development pipeline to meet clinical and technological expectations. We are dedicated to customizing our services around your needs.

 Organic & Polymer Materials

The biocompatibility and chemical inertness of several inorganic materials make them useful for dental applications ranging from crowns, caps and cements to additives, elastomers and restorative materials. Variations in the inorganic constituents allow tunability of optical and mechanical properties rendering them viable materials for dentistry.

We offer a large selection of well characterized salts, ceramics, oxides and nanopowders having a wide range of dental applications. We are also able to provide custom formulations according to our customers’ specific needs.
