LuxaCore Z is a radiopaque, dual-cured composite core material used for build-ups and post cementations. With the addition of zirconium oxide and nanofillers, the compressive strength and physical properties of LuxaCore Z have been enhanced compared to the original LuxaCore material. LuxaCore Z is offered in two delivery systems: the small SmartMix dual-barrel syringe and the larger auto-mix cartridge. It is available in three shades: A3, Blue, and Light-Opaque. Working time is 1:30 minutes, chemical curing time is 5:00 minutes, and light-curing depth is 2 mm at 20 seconds and 4 mm at 40 seconds. The SmartMix syringe kit contains two, 9-g syringes; 10 SmartMix tips; and 10 intraoral tips. The auto-mix cartridge kit contains one, 50-g cartridge; 35 auto-mix tips; and intraoral tips. The manufacturer recommends using a dual-cured adhesive such as LuxaBond-Total Etch bonding system. Thirty-two consultants evaluated LuxaCore Z in 450 clinical cases.
LuxaCore Z Dual is the ultra-strong, ultra-reliable core build-up material created with Zirconia. Its combination of Zirconia filler with DMG's patented nanotechnology means it significantly improves strength, flowability and physical properties, it's the ultimate in resin technology! LuxaCore Z Dual also works for your post cementing needs.
