NACERA® BLUE X
We have surpassed Cubic Zirconia in the desire for a strong, but highly translucent zirconium oxide. Nacera’s Blue X, applied to Nacera® Pearl 3Y-TZP Zirconia, exceeds the aesthetic properties of lithium disilicate by allowing technicians to brush into place the right amount of translucency only where desired.
The translucency will increase up to 8 % on Nacera® Zirconia. The advantages continue with improvements in strength. Nacera® Pearl Zirconia treated with Blue X has still a flexural strength of 1.200 MPa 4 Point Bending Stregth. Almost double Cubic Zirconia, and up to 3x that of lithium disilicate!
Blue X is especially developed for Nacera® Shaded Zirconia. It will lower the Chroma when applied to Incisal or Occlusal areas and generates a lifelike color transition – for a brushed Multilayer effect! The concept realized by „Blue X“ is a world first — made in Germany by DOCERAM Medical Ceramics.
THE ERGONOMIC SYSTEM FOR NATURAL-LOOKING RESTORATIONS
- 14 g
- Certain. Raise translucency and keep „full strength“
- Innovative. Apply translucency and color transition in one stroke
- Efficient. Anterior Esthetics at Half cost – no additional Cubic Zirconia inventory necessary
- Flexible. Cusp tips and incisal edges – use where desired
Nacera® Pearl treated with Nacera® Blue X tested according ISO 6872 can achieve
4 Point Bending Strength 1200 MPa (± 200 MPa) 3Y-TZP Fracture Toughness >9MPa√ m Translucency +4% Thickness 1,5 mm +6% Thickness 1,0 mm +8% Thickness 0,5 mm
