Myerson and vhf have announced that 4 polymer-based materials from Myerson are now validated for the vhf E5, K5+, S5, and R5 disc milling machines. Aiming to provide biocompatible, metal-free options for removable partial dentures, this validation will expand offerings for labs, according to Head of Product at vhf camfacture AG, Lucas Kehl.

“In order to provide our customers with a wide range of machining options, we are continuously expanding the range of validated materials,” Kehl said in a press release from vhf. “With the addition of 4 more materials from our partner Myerson, our North American customers benefit from an even larger selection of materials from a well-known manufacturer.”

Each material reportedly has 3 vital components which are biocompatibility, strength, and low moisture absorption. These materials each have different features that can all be suitable for removable partial dentures, per the press release. DuraFlex is a nylon-free PMMA material while the translucent VisiClear is indicated for both partial removables as well as temps. Other materials include DuraCetal which aims for both high fracture and flexural strength, and Ultaire AKP Dentivera which is a PAEK material that acts as a metal-free alternative to model casting frameworks.

To validate these materials, test specimens and restorations were milled internally in vhf’s test center. They were then evaluated and then validated by a reference laboratory. Northern Virginia Dental Lab was commissioned by Myerson to validate these materials, and owner Kris Schermerhorn expressed his enthusiasm for this validation in the press release.

“The perfect interplay of machines, tools, and software from vhf ensures first-class milling results with the new materials,” he said. “I am delighted that together we have succeeded in validating 4 renowned Myerson products for the vhf machines, which are very popular on the U.S. market.”
