Composition of everStick fibre

fibre cross-section

4000 silanated glass fibres impregnated with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) polymer and bis-gma. gel matrix (light cure monomer). Furthermore, the fibre bundle is surrounded by a PMMA outer layer. The earlier version, Stick fibre, did not have the bis-gma component or the separate PMMA covering.

Since everStick contains the light curing bis-gma component, it does not need to be impregnated with resin again before use. However, if the restoration was made in a laboratory, the surfaces need to be wetted with resin before bonding to the teeth. This also applies to repairs and to reactivation of the PMMA gel matrix where required. The PMMA covering: It improves the bond to the acrylic and composite materials and also makes the material easier to handle. The bis-gma alone is too sticky and sticks easily to the instruments and other materials.

Clinical advantages of Stick technology

  • Tissue saving
  • Direct bonding is possible
  • Direct, in-the-mouth applications possible
  • Structures are easy to repair
  • Many different uses possible
