Solvay Moves into Medical Devices

With the launch of Solvay Dental 360 Solvay is entering into the medical devices market (© Solvay)

Solvay SA, Brussels, Belgium, is entering into medical devices building on its portfolio of high-performance polymers with a new dental care business line. “Solvay Dental 360” spans from an innovative material to replace metal in removable partial denture frames, to enabling a digital workflow that accelerates the work of dental laboratories and dentists.

Removable partial denture (RPD) frames replace missing teeth and are typically made of metal. Under Solvay Dental 360, Solvay’s new high-performance material allows for metal-free, biocompatible, more comfortable, natural-looking RPD frames which are over 60% lighter than a metal frame. Solvay uses its new Ultaire AKP (aryl ketone polymer)material to make its Dentivera milling disc. From this device, trained and qualified dental lab technicians use software tailored to this material to design and mill the RPD frame. This enhances speed and efficiency as fewer manufacturing steps are needed compared to the metal frame. The necessary training is provided by the company via their Solvay University.

The Dentivera milling disc is approved by the EU and U.S. health regulators. The launch of Solvay Dental 360 takes place at the 2017 International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany.
