Chitosan for removable dentures

We present a new interesting publication with chitosan from HMC+ for you...

New Concept of Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Surface Coating by Chitosanection against degradation in simulated physiological conditions.

Mieszko Wieckiewicz, Eric Wolf, Gert Richter, Heike Meissner, Klaus Boening

The study investigated the adhesion of Chitosan for removable dentures or intraoral splints. Properties like hemostatic effects and antimicrobial functions of ChitosanS should be used to optimize the devices. Results of more than 70 of PMMA- and PET- specimens, coated with aluminum oxide, silica and chitosan, are shown. A reliable coating of the specimens were realized with Chitosan.
The complete results of the publication can be find here:
