HIPC: technical "High Impact Polymer Composite" for long-term dental prostheses. breCAM.HIPC is an amorphous, cross-linked composite material and therefore offers definitely higher physical values than conventional PMMA.

Manufacturing is carried out under pressure and in heated conditions similar to prefabricated made from plastic at approximately 120°C and 250 bars of pressure. Bypassing the use of dental glass and light-curing plastic ensures a high level of colour retention and plaque resistance (comparable with direct ceramic veneers or press ceramics).

HIPC originates from the development of the visio.lign system and corresponds to novo.lign veneers in chemical terms, with this material being extremely well-suited for long-term dental prostheses.

  • For long-term dental prostheses
    • HIPC has already been tested in vivo over 7 years.
      Clinically-proven material.
      Safety in use and indications.
  • Plaque-resistant
    • Excellent gingiva compatibility and resistance to discolorations lead to a higher level of patient acceptance.
  • Universal and economical, removable and fixed
  • Monolithic and can be veneered
    • The most diverse indications can be covered with a single material.
      Costs can be saved and system diversity and processing techniques can be minimised in the laboratory.
  • High level of strength / long-term stability
    • As a high-performance polymer, HIPC does not lose its strength in comparison with ceramic; ceramic “ages”.
      Material reliability and long-term stability of breCAM.HIPC leads to fewer complaints and repairs.
  • The material is more aesthetic, translucent and opalescent
    • Excellent colour effect with minimally invasive forms of restoration.
      Complicated cases with a lack of space can be neatly resolved by the use of HIPC.
