Ribbond Securing Composite
New Ribbond Securing Composite
Ribbond Securing Composite is available in 1-g tubes and 0.22-g carpules.
Ribbond Securing Composite is designed to work in concert with the dental fiber reinforcement product of the same name. This brand new composite is specially formulated to adapt Ribbond fibers to the teeth. Like a flowable composite, it flows easily. However, it also has a special 'tacky' characteristic to hold the Ribbond fibers in position. As opposed to a thicker restorative composite, Ribbond Securing Composite's unique viscosity is easily displaced during adaptation of the fibers. This minimizes the bond-line, maximizes the laminate effect, and makes adaptation easier.
Ribbond prevents fracture failures in dental composites and acrylics. Ribbond's unique combination of ultra-high-strength fibers, enhanced bondability, and patented cross-link lock-stitch leno weave makes the strength and fracture toughness of Ribbond reinforced prostheses superior to other fiber reinforcements. Ribbond bonds to any composite system, and forces within the resin are easily transferred to the fibers, ensuring that it provides integral strength to the prosthesis.
Ribbond is made from the same ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene fibers used to make bulletproof vests. These high-strength fibers are far more fracture-tough than glass fibers. In fact, they are so tough that special scissors are required to cut them. 'Bob Alaburda
