Historically dental materials are introduced by companies with tremendous positive sales accolades.As they goes through a series of tests by the user there is more time consuming and unnecessary tests to see if it suits their production system. After whuch they are incorporated into their system or rejected.
As a leader in the zirconia market Sagemax approaches its research in a manner that insures its users to have total confidence in the material. After exhaustive testing and qualified research much data is gathered to verify that the end user will not experience any negative results.
Research results such as Biaxial flexural strength,Translucency, Mill-ability, stainability, wear testing, and radioactivity are all available for the user.
Much research has led to the development by Sagemax of a material called NexxZr PLUS.
The idea behind this material was to develop something that would have aesthetic qualities of high translucency zirconia but also possess highest strength qualities of tetrahedral zirconia.
Ideally suited for both posterior and anterior regions this material can be used for 80% of restorations done in a dental lab.
Its monolithic qualities rivals that of lithium di-silicate.
Unlike cubic zirconia which tends to show a lower value NexxZr PLUS shows very unique characteristics of the perfect balance of translucency and opacity in the correct regions of the crown.

you know what would really help sell your stuff? a shade guide featuring specific liquid and shading instructions. not plastic tabs and generic dip advice but actual zirconia swatches on a stick with their shade dip and a booklet of instructions.

people will be much more hesitant to stray from known quality. and the tabs make it easy to reference when your furnaces is acting up, by giving you an actual zirconia reference as to what the shade should look like.

To be honest I got better results with another dipping liquid than the one they sent us!

Wow Daniel, what a convincing sales plug.Puke
Monolithic zirconia seems to present certain challenges to the user.
In general with the R&D that we have established, perhaps we can offer some solutions.

That is good. Some of our customers choose to use other liquids. Liquids designed for Cubic zirconia will work good also. DD, ZZ both give excellent results.

We went by the "60 second dip", well that didnt work. Tried for 30 seconds and it still came out to almost an A4
Just some hints that you may want to try if you haven't . Check the calibration of the oven. Low firing tends to give darker results, and too high temps give lighter results.
The silica molybdenum elements give diminishing final temps , so need slight adjustments from time to time.
Silica carbide ovens holds true temperatures, but have shorter life.

My Noritake comes out perfect every time

I dip for about 15 seconds but it depends on the shade too. You can always dilute your colors too with water
