      Hi, need your help, what is this pink material called? this picture GC Gradia Gum Opaque, but I need to make a metal partial denture, just don't know how is this pink opaque called, it consists of powder and liquid, you mix those together, apply on the framework and heat it a bit to make the pink powder stick, also if you could write the name of the product you're using that would be very helpful too.

      Gradia Gum is a Light Cure material.
      It is not heated, but rather the material is made to be processed by exposure to the light of special lightbulbs. The lightbulbs do give off some heat like all bulbs, but the heat is not the reason they are used.

      Hi all- might help if you seek out Tom Zaleske, he put me on to Gradia. PS- don't have to buy into their light cure if you have one that has the right wave length. Hope this helps.

      Opaque is fine-ish for major connectors, but will flick off clasps eventually.

      The pictures you posted are from an article I wrote at the beginning of the year.
      Gradia Gum Opaque is a light cured product when used in conjunction with the GC Metalprimer works outstanding.
      A Triad or Proform halogen bulb light will cure the material nicely.
      You can indeed use this product on clasps where it actually matters, on the tooth in the non-flexing areas, but personally I have been
      using the product for the entire clasp, I have not had any fail in almost 3 years of doing this.
      The product comes in tooth colored and pink.
