Methacrylate monomers for Health Care

VISIOMER® MMA multifunctional methacrylates are also ideally suited for various dental applications, including
  • Artificial teeth and dentures
  • Temporary crowns and bridges
  • Fillings
  • Adhesives
Artificial teeth and dentures are manufactured using the monomer/polymer method. Here, formulations typically contain a certain amount of multifunctional methacrylates, e.g. VISIOMER® EGDMA. 

Composites for crowns and bridges, fillings and adhesives contain high molecular weight multifunctional methacrylates that show minimum shrinkage during polymerization, e.g. VISIOMER® HEMATMDI, as well as low-molecular-weight multifunctional methacrylates for viscosity adjustment, such as VISIOMER® TRGDMA.

Dental applications also require monomers that can be light-cured. Due to its reactivity, VISIOMER® HEMATMDI is one of the methacrylate monomers that is specifically dedicated to this application.
