FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Dan Boskocevic, Alsip, IL – October 2016 – GC America Inc. introduces GC Initial™ LiSi Press, a revolutionary new pressable ceramic.
It combines unparalleled strength and exceptional aesthetics. Best of all, it is faster to process, its optimized to be used with GC Initial™ LiSi veneering ceramic, and leaves virtually no reaction layer making your laboratory more productive.
FINALLY! A LITHIUM DISILICATE CERAMIC WITH THE AESTHETICS AND STRENGTH TECHNICIANS DEMAND WITHOUT BEING LOW IN VALUE.
GC Initial LiSi Press is a new high strength lithium disilicate ingot from GC with HDM (High Density Micronization) technology. This proprietary new technology provides unsurpassed physical properties while obtaining the most aesthetic pressed ceramic option on the market today! This amazing new material from GC attributes these benefits to their new HDM technology. It utilizes equally dispersed lithium disilicate micro-crystals to fill the entire glass matrix, rather than using traditional larger size crystals that do not take full advantage of the entire matrix structure. As result, GC Initial LiSi Press combines the ultimate combination of strength and aesthetics making it perfectly suitable for all different types of dental restorations.
Most importantly, this technology allows the product to be very stable without distortion and drop in value, even after multiple firings. GC Initial LiSi Press is also perfectly optimized to be used with the already proven GC Initial LiSi veneering ceramic to provide your laboratory with the strongest, most user friendly, aesthetic, and stable option on the market today.
