E-Appliance is a 3D printing material from EnvisionTEC that is ideal for printing orthodontic models. E-Appliance is a specially designed nano-filled resin material and is the first 3D printing material that will work reliably with both polyvinyl alcohol based-separators and tin foil substitute for a "salt and pepper technique" of producing an orthodontic appliance.
This method of in-house or lab-based construction of orthodontic removable or fixed appliances provides excellent strength and durability combined with an amazing array of design latitude for individuality of expression for the patient. Models that have been 3D printed with E-Appliance offer the detailed precision and high quality surface finish that EnvisionTEC is known for coupled with a surface that accepts a wide range of separator mediums for perfect removal of the finished appliance from the model. E-Appliance is available for both their Perfactory® DLP and 3SP™ families of 3D printers for the dental market.
