DuraFlex is a breakthrough thermoplastic that resolves the limitations found in older flexible materials like nylon, while still offering all the advantages of a flexible partial. DuraFlex is melted and injected under pressure. The result is a flexible partial that is easier to adjust, easier to polish, and will not “gum up” rotary instruments like other flexible materials.
Additional Information About DuraFlex Flexible Partials
The advanced thermoplastic used to make DuraFlex has a semicrystalline polymer structure, making it both strong and hygienic. It is clinically unbreakable and more durable than acrylic. DuraFlex also offers highly desirable esthetics, with a veined appearance in three gingival colors. The material is translucent, allowing the natural coloring of the underlying tissue to show through, giving it a virtually invisible appearance.
