Since the chemist Hermann Staudinger produced synthetic resin for the first time around 1920, polymers of every form and colour have captured our daily life. Be it a plastic bag or a hearing aid shell, the molecular structure is fundamentally always the same. For 60 years, we have been developing silicones and light-curing acrylics for dental and other medical applications. The polymer chemistry of material science is our universe, think tank and core competence.
Due to the unique physical properties, the possible applications for our materials are virtually unlimited. Let‘s take for example silicone, a particularly robust polymeric compound and an universal genius. Silicone has a long lifespan, is highly elastic, biocompatible and seals very well. In addition it is heat-resistant, easy to clean and sterilizable. A truly prime candidate for ever-new applications in medical technology. Thus, detax softwear®, the first earmould silicone specifically developed for filling negative casts produced by generative manufacturing methods, was tailor-made for this application. Owing to new flow properties „perfect flow consistency“, defined air displacement and minimal surface tension, bubble formation in the casting stages or adhesion to the resin form belong to the past.
Our enthusiasm and innovative strength lies in
every one of the products that you will get to know over the next
pages. All of them count among the best materials the market has to
offer. As a medium-sized company of the chemical industry, we rely on a
high degree of specialization, above-average investment in development
and in dedicated employees.
From development through production,
packaging, quality- and product management up to marketing & sales,
we keep all processes in our own hands, in our own company; the thinking
outside the box included. Our business relationships are built upon
intercultural expertise, trust and integrity.
The rest is chemistry – with passion!

We develop hydrophilic impression making silicones for every indication (corrective and double mix technology, kneadable working impression making for functioning rim design, sandwich technology, monophase impression making). Precision impression making materials of lightly flowing consistency with ideal flow characteristics, maximum wetting power, and elastic resilience. Regular set, fast set or super fast set with thermoactive setting characteristics and a defined snap set, kneadable putty, color violet with wildberry flavor. Ear impression making silicones in 50 ml double cartridges specially for IO/CIC changes with lightly flowing starting consistency, even for narrow auditory canals or patients with chronic pain. Ear impression making silicones for children and young people (paediatrics), pressure-less impression, no ingress of soft tissue. Ear impression making material for hearing-protection adjustments, low squeezing pressure, stable, does not run out of the ear, short time in the ear, skin friendly, non adhesive. Highly elastic resilience, easy to remove, 35 Shore A monophase impression making silicone in medium tray consistency. Harmonized consistencies of tray and corrective material. Transfer silicones, quick-setting and clearly transparent A-silicone base bite registration material, medium flow, thixotropic, to be applied directly on the row of teeth, no flowing away into interdental chambers, X-ray transparent matrix material, crystal clear, final hardness 80 Shore A, for light hardening of composites. Scannable VPS bite registration material for the powder-free 3D data acquisition for all CAD/CAM/CIM processes (stripe light projection, laser triangulation and CEREC), 32 Shore D, short time spent in the mouth. Permanently plasticizing relining silicones, direct relining in the dental practice chairside or for processing in the dental laboratory. Broad indication spectrum (obturators and mouth guards) with plaque inhibitors, clinically tested and scientifically documented. Secure bond to prosthetic acrylate. Additional crosslinking duplicating silicones and laboratory plasticines 85 Shore A for precasts, control bites, fixing of artificial teeth, models for prosthetic repairs. Permanently elastic otoplastic silicone, buoyant, direct fitting of water plugs and ear canal plastics, for the indirect manufacture of soft HdO and protective plastics, for PNP, 3D cast technology, permanently keeps its color. Even with extended processing time for series manufacture in the obtoplastics laboratory. Air-drying silicone paint for water plug plastics antibacterial with silver particles. Bis-acrylic composite 10.1 for temporary crowns, bridges and long-term temporaries with elastic phase and maximum and flexural and abrasion resistances, low polymerization temperature, translucent colors: A1, A2, A3, A3,5. Composite-based fissure sealant with wet bonding technology. Protective lacquer for exposed root dentine with high degree of cross-linking based on multifunctional (meth)acrylate has a desensitizing effect, forms a barrier against erosion, thereby reducing cervical sensitivity. Transparent fluoride varnish with amino-fluoride, mouth wash. Flexible gum masks for dental master and saw models, dimensionally stable, for a naturally aesthetic gingival look in tubes or cartridges. Dental cements for definitive and semi-permanent implantation, fasteners, long-term temporary fixing cements, plastic-based radio-opaque, cementation of supra-constructions, dual hardener system. Ready-to-use modeling resin, as a gel or paste, MMA-free, combustible without resins, no polymerization shrinkage. Gum epithesis material, hot curing. Kneable UV plastics for manufacturing biocompatible splints & templates.
