ZERAMEX® XT RB & WB VICARBO Screw, Straight/Angular
The heart of the connection is the VICARBO® screw.
It works like a bolt, which anchors the abutment in the implant. The extremely hard ceramic is combined with a very stiff, carbon fibre-reinforced high-performance peek. In a way similar to reinforced concrete, the ceramic absorbs the compressive forces, while the VICARBO® screw counteracts tensile forces.
It is characterised by excellent isoelastic properties and demonstrates clear strengths: It is metal-free, biocompatible according to ISO 10993 for long-term implants and nestles into the given contour.
This is also proven by the technical values:
- Modulus of elasticity: 110 GPa.
- Bending strength: Greater than 1.100 MPa.
- Tensile strength: 2.000 MPa (comparison: Grade 5 titanium: 1.000 MPa).
