Nacera’s Innovation Concept: Blue X
Nacera have reinterpreted the technician´s wish for a highly translucent zirconium oxide with the same aesthetic properties as lithium disilicate. The result is a material that can be flexible and purposed for use in the standard zircon blanks. It increases translucency only where it is desired; the advantageous mechanical properties remain largely intact.
The concept of Blue X is a world first— made in Dortmund, Germany only by DOCERAM Medical Ceramics.
Advantages at a Glance:
Increases translucency selectively and specifically
No need to purchase new zirconium oxide blanks
Cusp tips, anterior spaces, incisal edges — use where desired
Mechanical properties and indications are retained almost in their entirety
Nacera Pearl treated with Nacera Blue X tested according ISO 6872 can achieve:
Flexural strength 1.200 – 1.600 MPa
Fracture Toughness >9MPa/m
Translucency 3% thickness 1,5mm; 5% thickness 1,0mm; 8% thickness 0,6mm
