Specialty Polymers and Resins – Dental


Long-term commitment to delivering for customers

Over the last 75 years we have built a strong reputation for supplying the very highest quality acrylic polymers to the dental market. Today we have a comprehensive range of Colacryl® and Lucite® branded products and are committed to developing our knowledge and understanding of the sector so we can continue to lead with tailored solutions that deliver performance certainty to our customers.

Close and confidential relationships that count

Working with global market leaders and academic communities specialising in orthodontics, we have established close and confidential relationships that support the development of groundbreaking solutions to the challenges that are arising from our developing world. A growing, ageing population, increasing affluence and changing lifestyles all contribute to the challenges faced by dental practitioners on a daily basis.

Quality assured in all that we do

Close control of particle size, molecular weight and chemical composition combined with product traceability and compliance to the current REACH legislation, are all factors that contribute to the performance success of our Colacryl® and Lucite® polymers. We meet the rigorous standards of the quality management systems required by the European Medical Devices Directive and are currently registered to the design standard EN ISO 9001:2008 and Regulatory Standard EN ISO 13485:2003.

  • Auto-polymerising polymers

    – for full and partial dentures, repairs and relines with a non-yellowing option

  • Tooth polymers

    – medium to high molecular weights that can be modified with our Allyl Methacrylates to enhance cross linking

  • Orthodontic polymers

    – characterised by close control of particle size, free flow and rapid absorption of dental liquid

  • Specialist applications

    – covering crown and bridge polymers, tray polymers, chair-side relign polymers and ear mould polymers
