The revolutionary material ensures exceptional quality and esthetics that are comparable to those of lithium disilicate glass-ceramic. This is made possible by the Gradient Technology – a new, innovative manufacturing technique which is used in the production of the material. It is the key to outstanding quality.
Gradient Technology (GT) – the centrepiece of IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime
The new, unique Gradient Technology (GT) is at the heart of IPS e.max ZirCAD Prime. It involves three innovative steps which allow the two raw materials 3Y-TZP (high-strength zirconia) and 5Y-TZP (high-translucent zirconia) to be combined in order to produce the exceptional properties of this revolutionary material.
