Lucitone HIPA is designed for use in fabrication, repair, rebasing or relining of full and partial dentures.
Dentsply Prosthetics announced the introduction of Lucitone® HIPA, a high-impact pourable acrylic denture base. It is said to be the first pourable acrylic denture base on the market to exceed both of the required ISO standards for improved impact resistance.
Lucitone HIPA was introduced in the United States in January and launched globally at IDS in Cologne, Germany, in March.
Catherine Bonser, Dentsply Sirona director of prosthetics global removable products, commented: “Lucitone HIPA truly provides solutions to dental labs. Labs who use the traditional heat cured technique can now work faster, while still providing a high-impact denture. Increased durability reduces the potential for fractures in the dental lab resulting in time and cost savings due to less remakes. And, increased durability reduces the risk of breakage from the patient during normal use.”
Lucitone HIPA is reportedly a self-curing denture base material designed for use in fabrication, repair, rebasing or relining of full and partial dentures, including implant overdentures or other dental appliances. In addition to being the first high-impact pourable acrylic denture base, Lucitone HIPA is said to also feature excellent color stability and accurate fit to model.
