Smartest material properties and enhanced esthetics
Taglus® PU Flex is a homogeneous single-layered polyurethane sheet that consists of linear polymeric chains made of alternating flexible and rigid segments. It is a high-performance aligner and retainer material that provides excellent flexibility, strength, and durability, while also providing comfort for the wearer.
In applications where plastic films are designed to withstand orthodontic forces in an aligner, the mechanical properties of polymers namely Strength, Stiffness & Toughness play a vital role. Such properties of TAGLUS Premium sheets when investigated using standardised test methods, e.g. tensile stress as per ASTM D 638: 2014 by briefly applying load in one direction the approximate results and values observed during such test, demonstrate that TAGLUS Premium is a unique balance of rigidity with elasticity. The test was performed by an NABL accreditated Laboratory complying with ISO/IEC 17025 Laboratory Management System.
Tensile Modulus, or Youngs Modulus, widely known as the tendency of an object to deform along an axis when opposing forces are applied along that axis; and defined as the ratio of tensile stress to tensile strain. TAGLUS Premium sheets having a very high tensile modulus of approximately upto 2610 MPa, tested as per ASTM D638:2014 give the best crack free aligners.
The photographs of TAGLUS Premium when compared with other PU Based aligner sheets shows a noticeable difference in the clarity of the object placed at a distance from the sheet. TAGLUS Premium has highest clarity in its class
