Re: [Histonet] maximize the hardness of MMA

From:Phil McArdle


If the MMA you refer to is a Technovit product: we are the US 
distributor of Heraeus Kulzer's Technovit kits including 7100, 8100 and 
9100. In the case of their MMA kits which consist of (5) components, 
component 5 is the softener, so a smaller proportion results in a harder 
block. It is possible to eliminate component 5 altogether, but Kulzer 
"officially" recommends against this since other undesirable side 
effects (brittleness, etc.) can occur. However, you may want to try this 
with some non-critical samples (or no sample at all) to see how the 
blocks cut.

Best regards,
