ZIRITE: pre-sintered and sintered blocks of zirconium oxide ZrO2-Y2O3 for dental prosthesis

Keramo has recently realized a new complete range of blocks (pre-sintered and/or sintered) based on zirconium oxide , more and more successfully used to prepare dental prosthesis.
These new blocks , better known with the trade-name Zirite , are made up of innovative and controlled quality materials of great purity ( zirconium oxide stabilized with yttrium) and give to the operators of this field the opportunity to get extremely precise , safe and fully biocompatible prosthetic articles.
These blocks are supplied like “partly sintered” structures and this enables to fulfil all mechanical workings (such as Milling) which normally come before the last sintering process of the finished part.
Keramo S.p.a. assures to her customers a completely protected and guaranteed quality given that its Quality Management System is certified according to UNI-EN ISO 9001:2000 and UNI-EN ISO 13485:2004 rules and such products ( medical devices ) are marked CE according to the directive 93/42 CEE (enclosure V).
Every single batch of blocks is therefore provided with the mark CE 0546 and accompanied with a Declaration of Compliance which assures the total checking of the production processes as well as the whole tracing of the components used for. The results obtained by citotoxicity, genotoxicity and oral mucous ’s irritation tests, realized on "ZIRITE" blocks according to UNI EN ISO 10993-1 represent a forwarding attestation of Keramo products.
