Dentsply Sirona Prosthetics Introduces the First High Impact Pourable Acrylic Denture Base

York, Pennsylvania, April 4, 2017 – Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company™, announces the introduction of Lucitone® HIPA (High Impact Pour Acrylic).

Lucitone® HIPA is a high impact pourable acrylic denture base. It is the first pourable acrylic denture base on the market to exceed both of the required ISO standards for improved impact resistance. Lucitone HIPA was introduced in the United States in January and launched globally at the IDS Meeting in Cologne.

Catherine Bonser, Dentsply Sirona Director of Prosthetics Global Removable Products, commented “Lucitone HIPA truly provides solutions to dental labs. Labs who use the traditional heat cured technique can now work faster, while still providing a high impact denture. Increased durability reduces the potential for fractures in the dental lab resulting in time and cost savings due to less remakes. And, increased durability reduces the risk of breakage from the patient during normal use.”

Lucitone HIPA is a self-curing denture base material designed for use in fabrication, repair, rebasing or relining of full and partial dentures, including implant overdentures or other dental appliances. In addition to being the first high impact pourable acrylic denture base, Lucitone HIPA also features excellent color stability and accurate fit to model.
