Paramount Processing – blank production process ensures optimum zirconia properties

With Paramount Processing, Amann Girrbach sets new standards for the high-end production of zirconia. Backed by extensive material testing procedures, Amann Girrbach ensures material properties that guarantee maximum aesthetics and durability.

Processed to a blank, zirconia by no means equals zirconia. The optimum control of the entire process chain from the powder through to the blank is decisive for the quality that the dental technician can in effect achieve with the material. Therefore, Amann Girrbach executes the production of Zolid DNA blanks completely in-house at its production site in Austria.

Amann Girrbach has been processing only the best raw materials there for years in detailed and certified processes. This is the only way to ensure that all material parameters are optimally adapted to the requirements of dental technology - and that the material is perfectly integrated into the Ceramill DNA workflow.

Amann Girrbach applies the strictest testing methods here, which go well beyond the usual scope. The examination of safety-relevant parameters such as mechanical properties, long-term stability, biocompatibility, microstructure or abrasion is regarded as the standard. The experts at Amann Girrbach measure a dozen other properties. For example, these include colour and millability, surface quality and staining behaviour, translucency and tool wear. As a result of this optimised procedure - dubbed Paramount Processing - Zolid users can offer their customers the highest aesthetics and maximum durability by employing a manufacturing process that is efficient for them.
