LuxaCore Z Dual is closer to natural dentin than the competition in terms of cuttability and, more specifically, the proportion of zirconia gives it excellent compressive strength. This particular property ensures top-quality, natural restorations – confirmed in tests, as shown in the graphs on the right.
Excellent flow properties.
The material's outstanding flow properties guarantee optimum adaptation to the shape of cavity walls and posts. The thin film thickness of just 20 μm is ideal when used for post cementation. (According to ISO 4049 the limit for precision cement is 25 μm).

Fewer materials = a more reliable solution.
Used as a single material for core build-up and post cementation, LuxaCore Z Dual simplifies the process and creates reliable restorations.
It can be used with any pre-silanized post, like LuxaPost. This glass fiber reinforced composite post has a similar flexural modulus to LuxaCore Z Dual and natural dentin, making it the perfect product partner.
Using fewer, but perfectly matched materials delivers a very stable monoblock, avoiding stresses in the sensitive system comprised of tooth, post, cement, and core build-up material.
