Lab denture repairs

An independent study has shown that denture acrylic loses 40% of its fracture resistance after being repaired by traditional methods. Most often, repaired dentures will just break again.

By reinforcing the repair with FiBER FORCE® UD fibers, it is possible to add significant fracture and fatigue resistance to the repaired denture. A study has shown that repaired denture acrylic that is reinforced with UD pre-impregnated e-glass fibers (the material used to make FiBER FORCE®) was 58% stronger than the original acrylic and 166% stronger than acyclic repaired in a traditional method.
