Gibbstown, NJ and Basel, Switzerland, July 21, 2021 – Keystone Industries and Straumann Group have cleared KeySplint Soft for dental applications with Straumann P series printers.
KeySplint Soft is unlike any other 3D printing material, and is a highly efficient and profitable way to make splints and night guards. Without being brittle, it is tough and durable like a hard splint to withstand the forces of bruxism, yet flexible for patient comfort. KeySplint Soft is made in the USA, has 3 years of guaranteed shelf life, and has regulatory clearance in the USA, Canada, EU, and Australia.
Keystone Industries’ KeyPrint line of precision 3D resins has become one of the leading open-source dental resins by focusing on market needs and product quality, while rigorously ensuring the products are safe, effective, and compliant with international standards.
“Keystone is thrilled to complete our validation partnership with Straumann,” said Keystone’s dental president, Ira Rosenau. “In the P20+ and P30+ printing systems, Straumann and his team have created a user-friendly, efficient and clever workflow that yields precise printed parts.” Miguel Perez, Keystone’s Vice President of International Sales Development, noted that, “Straumann has established a loyal worldwide customer base and a strong reputation for quality, we believe we can help each other continue to grow in customers digitalization process.”
Straumann P series printers offer a combination of high quality, flexibility, and efficiency for operations of any size. The P20+ is perfect for those looking to try 3D printing for the first time, offering an economical solution without compromising quality. The P30+ offers more advanced functionality, such as semi-automated printing and increased output.
“We are excited to offer KeySplint Soft to our customers,” said Straumann Group’s Global Product Manager for 3D printing, Victor Gutgesell. “In the past years we have seen an increasing demand for bite splints to protect natural teeth, restorations and implants. KeySplint Soft is unique in its properties, it feels comfortable in the mouth and is resistant against wear and tear, unlike many other splint materials that we have seen for 3D printers.”
