Desktop Health โ€” the trusted production-grade medical 3D printing brand of Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM) โ€” today announced an even stronger formulation of its Flexcera resin for 3D printing gingiva, Flexcera Base Ultra+, which is used to fabricate full and partial removable dentures.

New Flexcera Base Ultra+ is 50% stronger than its predecessor with 70% greater resistance to deformation vs. ISO standards. This improved flexural strength allows for the creation of thinner wall and socket designs, enhancing resistance to deformation for long-term durability, fit, and overall patient comfort. This powerhouse formulation better aligns with design expectations in the industry and also resists staining for confidence in long-term aesthetics.

In testing, Einstein Pro XL produces 21 Flexcera Base Ultra+ denture arches in about 90 minutes and reduces post-processing time for a highly efficient workflow.

โ€œNew Flexcera Base Ultra+ demonstrates how we listen to customers and give them what theyโ€™re asking for, such as a firmer final product in an industry favorite shade,โ€ said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. โ€œWith more dental professionals than ever adopting a digital workflow and an aging population, the popular Flexcera family fits a growing need in the marketplace.โ€
