Asiga has validated resins from Desktop Health’s Flexcera family for its 3D printers

Flexcera is a family of popular FDA 510(k) cleared nanoceramic polymers used for 3D printing removable and restorative dental prosthetics. Asiga is now the second third-party hardware provider to validate Desktop Health‘s high-quality Flexcera dental resins on its 3D printers.

The validation means that thousands of dental labs and practices in the US, UK, European Economic Area and Canada can now use Flexcera resin. The validated products include Flexcera Smile Ultra+, Flexcera Smile and Flexcera Base, which have been specifically developed for use in dental technology.

Flexcera Smile Ultra+ offers esthetic and durable performance for permanent and temporary dental restorations such as dentures, crowns, bridges and veneers. Compared to conventional denture acrylic, it offers improved strength and esthetic qualities.

“We are extremely pleased by the exceptional performance of our Flexcera family of dental resins,” said Lou Azzara, President of Desktop Health. “By expanding access to our world-class solutions, we’re empowering dental laboratories and practices with groundbreaking innovations like Flexcera. Asiga, with its extensive high-quality customer network, takes accessibility in the industry to unprecedented heights.”

Flexcera resins are now validated for a wide range of Asiga printers including the Max UV, Max 2, Ultra and Pro 4K and meet stringent ISO standards for print accuracy, mechanical properties and biocompatibility.

“Flexcera is an undeniable leader in the dental market for 3D printed nanoceramics, and we continue to make this popular choice available to other high-powered platforms. We are absolutely delighted to welcome Asiga customers into the Flexcera family,” said Ric Fulop, CEO of Desktop Metal. “Asiga has one of the largest installed bases of DLP® printers in both North America and Europe, and we look forward to more customers being able to enjoy the material.”

The partnership between Desktop Health and Asiga marks a significant step in expanding the applications of advanced 3D printing materials in dentistry. The availability of Flexcera for Asiga systems heralds a new era in the production of dental restorations, revolutionizing both material science and patient-specific care.
