Focus on…new DURASPLINT® flex
Thermo-active, flexible splint material with memory effect.
The new, high-tech resin DURASPLINT® flex belongs to SCHEU’s suite of ‘Smart Materials’ and is specifically designed for the fabrication of functional occlusal splints.
Take a look at our video clip from Oswestry Dental’s Michael Cattell. Their milling machine is using a digital data file to cut out and create a new appliance using DURASPLINT® flex.
Self-adjusting for a perfect fit
Thanks to its thermo-active properties, the material becomes flexible and self-adjusting at mouth temperature, to achieve the perfect, comfortable fit for every patient.
At the same time, the memory effect of this material when at room temperature ensures the appliance retains its original shape over the long-term. Splints that are made using DURASPLINT® flex are not only thermally flexible but also tear-resistant and shatter-proof as well as durable and permanently transparent.
High quality materials
The composition of the material corresponds to high medical standards. DURASPLINT® flex does not contain any phthalate-based softening agents, instead using only flexibilisers which are approved for use in medical technology. This significantly reduces the risk of irritation and sensitisation.
Thanks to the use of high quality raw materials, DURASPLINT® flex displays excellent biological and material compatibility, while the unique manufacturing process guarantees the tastelessness of the material.
The absence of amino acid compounds and methyl methacrylate means you don’t experience any yellow discolouration with this product.
The use of DURASPLINT® flex milling blanks in CAD/CAM technology offers greater speed and accuracy. However, if you don’t have a milling machine, the material is soon to be supplied as a polymer and monomer.
