Ribbond Ribbon Orthodontic 1MM Splint Material
Patented Leno WeaveThe key to Ribbond's success (and what distinguishes Ribbond from the other fiber reinforcements) is its patented leno weave. Designed with a lock-stitch feature that effectively transfers forces throughout the weave without stress transfer back into the resin, Ribbond's weave also provides excellent manageability characteristics.
RibbondRibbond prevents fracture failures in dental composites and acrylics. Ribbond prostheses are strong and maintain their strength with continued use. They are tough and durable. Ribbond's unique combination of ultra-high strength fibers, enhanced bondability and patented cross-link lock-stitch leno weave makes the strength and fracture toughness of Ribbond reinforced prostheses unsurpassed by other fiber reinforcements.
Ultra-high strength fibersRibbond is made from the same ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers used to make bulletproof vests. These fibers far exceed the breaking point of fiberglass and are so tough that specially made scissors are required to cut them. Unlike Kevlar, Ribbond's fibers absorb less moisture than the dental resins
BiocompatibleRibbond's fibers are the standard in biocompatibility. The same material is also used in the construction of artificial hip and knee joints. Unlike fiberglass, if at anytime the Ribbond is cut into with a rotary instrument, the resultant particles and exposed fibers will not be a biocompatibility risk to the patient.
