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.
