Esschem Europe offer a group of monomers and polymers  for use in the varied formulations of tooth manufacture.  Designers have wide freedom to customise their tooth products by selecting the amount and type of crosslinking agent, whether it will be through the polymeric modifier or through the monomer. Premixed polymer blends are also available. All of the polymers are available in clear substrates and can be custom shaded.

B174 denture base polymer is a versatile copolymer which is capable of being cured in thick sections without porosity.
The material can be cured in all usual conventional cure profiles, but also with a 20 minute boil cure which  means faster production times.  
 It is used with liquid P833, which is designed specifically to work with B174 in the rapid cure profile.
Available in clear and several popular denture base shades, with and without fibres.
