Taglus TUFF Retainer Material is a new revolutionary patented engineering plastic, designed to be super strong and thin. Taglus TUFF uses uniaxially oriented amorphous material with polymer chain - locked together in a non specific lattice structure. Our addition of special grade glycol to PET removes the hazing effect seen during heating and also prevents an undesirable crystallization.
Additionally, the inclusion of glycol in this composition transforms the inner walls of aligner/ retainer into a more comfortable material to the patient. So TAGLUS Tuff is unique engineering combination of elasticity with rigidity and clarity – a perfect balance
Use Taglus TUFF when you need the strongest retainer material, in a thin form for optimal comfort. —
FEATURES + BENEFITS:
Ultra Thin: Taglus Tuff is the thinnest retainer of 0.8mm thickness. Its minimum thickness makes it ultra comfortable to wear.
Ideal Mechanical Properties: The Significant high break strength of 59 MPa keeps the sheet from breaking. The high level of ductility is provided by 7% Yield elongation.
Predictable Retaining Force: It provides sufficient yield strength (41 MPa) to retain the teeth’ position.
Dual Protective masking: Ultra-thin, peel-away masking on both sides ensures that it remains scratch-proof, moisture resistant, and promotes shelf life.
