Overview

Kuraray Noritake’s revolutionary zirconia portfolio features three ground breaking multi-layered product classes, as well as monolithic High Translucent zirconia. These products are made from a proprietary powder and processing formulation that make them, unlike their competitors. This chemistry produces an esthetic restoration which provides predictable results for the laboratory technician and dentist.

 
 

Enamel-like Translucency

KATANA™ Zirconia UTML / STML
has enamel-like translucency with innovative multi-layered technology, making it suitable for full-contour zirconia crowns, including anterior restorations.

KATANA™ Zirconia UTML / STML
has a comparable translucency to e.max, as well as a higher mechanical strength.

Recommended Applications

KATANA™ Zirconia UTML/STML is designed to achieve superior results with both gradational chroma and translucency for esthetic restorations.

KATANA Zirconia UT Monoclinic Content Chart

Kuraray Noritake Dental, Inc.’s Zirconia powder is processed in-house, making its formulation unlike its competitors. This chemistry produces an esthetic restoration which provides predictable results for the laboratory technician and dentist.

Zirconia inherently has three systems: monoclinic, tetragonal and cubic. A tetragonal system transforms into a monoclinic system on the zirconia surface under hydrothermal conditions. This may cause a decrease in strength.

KATANA™ Zirconia HT exhibits a minimal monoclinic shift; whereby, KATANA™ Zirconia UT exhibits virtually no monoclinic shift, due to its cubic system- both products will maintain their strength and durability.
