Innovation for maximum design freedom
A milled upper and lower jaw partial framework made of PEEK is characterized by both a perfect fit and interesting conditions - regardless of the number of clasps. Our branded material PEEK stands for high durability and, as a biocompatible high-performance plastic, represents an alternative for metal allergy patients. We would be happy to advise you on your first designs with tips and tricks.
PEEK - the abbreviation for polyether ether ketone - is a relatively young material. The plastic material is particularly resistant: it is insensitive to almost all organic and inorganic chemicals and to high-energy electromagnetic waves (such as X-rays).
Its melting temperature is 335° Celsius. PEEK has a degree of elasticity similar to human bone and it is very insensitive to abrasion. Once polished, the surface is very smooth, which means that it has little tendency to discolour and hardly allow plaque to be deposited. It is X-ray transparent and, due to its flexibility, also very break-resistant.
