Polymer For Dentistry
The polymer is made of polysiloxane, polyvinyl and other additives. The polymer is a novel composition comprising polysiloxane, polyvinyl and additives resulting into an improved polymer with high tensile strength, high energy absorbing capabilities and high resiliency.
A number of compositions are available in the market for making customized sports dentistry equipments and in medicine but there is a constant need for up-gradation.
The present composition provides unique properties to the polymer such a
- easily moldable – ease of customization
- high tensile strength- no tearing and high resiliency
- high energy absorbing capabilities – provides better protection and comfort
- biocompatible & biologically inert – can be used inside and outside the body
AREA OF APPLICATIONS
In medicine: the polymer immobilizes or provides support to broken bones or joints. The customized products manufactured from this polymer provide better support or immobilization because they are designed to match the configuration and contour of the body.
In sports dentistry: the guards e.g. mouth guards are used to cover all teeth and protect gums and cheeks from cuts or injury.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 3.5 million children and teens get hurt annually playing organized or school sports. In response to the rise in the number of sports-related injuries, manufacturers having been working on developing or improving protective sports equipment to reduce the incidence of injuries
The U.S. market for sports protective equipment was worth $1.8 billion in 2012. The market is projected to increase to nearly $1.9 billion in 2013 and $2.1 billion in 2018, aCAGR(compoundannual growth rate) of 2.6% between 2013 and 2018.
The domestic sports market has witnessed considerable growth during the financial year 2008-2013 on account of the surging demand of sports goods from the youth and other recreational activities and rising of sports events held in India.
Therefore, the polymer with more than one area of application i.e. sports dentistry equipments and in medicine, the market potential for commercialization is very high.
