Kerr’s new Harmonize is described as a next generation composite infused with ART
Universal composite features Adaptive Response Technology, benefits such as strength and improved handling.
Kerr’s new HarmonizeTM is described as a next generation composite infused with Adaptive Response Technology (ART). Adaptive Response Technology is a nanoparticle filler network formulated to help you achieve lifelike restorations with more ease and simplicity than ever.
With better blending capabilities and enhanced structural integrity, the ART of Harmonize is said to provide your restorations with exceptional strength and unmatched esthetics. The ART filler system in Harmonize diffuses and reflects light in a similar way as human enamel, for an enhanced chameleon effect. Other benefits include strength and handling. Careful control of the size and shape of the ART filler system permits high loading for optimal strength.
Reinforced nano-scale filler particle network has improved mechanical properties and is more reactive with resin for more efficient polymerization. Adaptive viscosity is said to offer easier handling and the material’s filler network features high loading and a spherical shape to minimize stickiness while also incorporating a rheological modifier. This provides adaptive viscosity: it’s softer while sculpting, making it easy to shape the composite. When sculpting is complete, the viscosity increases, which prevents the material from slumping.
