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
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.
