What is the difference between Pekkton® and PEEK?

In contrast to its competition, Pekkton® ivory has one additional ketone.
One additional ketone results in better mechanical properties.

Benefits for the user:
  • Better, easier and faster to polish
Benefits for the dentist:
  • Surface is more attractive and more compact, thus decreasing the risk of bacterial colonization
  • Less risk of chipping

The structure of the base monomers is different. The ketone / ether ratio results in different mechanical and physical properties.
The structure of the polymers is different and the process behavior leads to different results in terms of strength, rigidity, melting point and melting behavior.
