Carbon, a pioneering technology company in product development and AM has validated Keystone KeyMask material for use with Carbon M-series printers. This collaboration marks a continuation of the partnership between two of the most innovative companies in the dental industry.

KeyMask, developed by Keystone Industries, a company focused on consumable digital, laboratory, operatory, and preventative products, is a flexible, yet firm 3D printed material designed to simulate the look and feel of natural gum tissue. Its introduction to the Carbon M-series printers enables dental labs to enhance their digital restoration planning with accurate, low-shrinkage, and easily trimmed gingival masks. This solution is expected to transform the way, dental labs approach prosthetics and restorative dentistry.

KeyMask is known for its remarkable strength, flexibility, and natural aesthetics – ensuring durability and a realistic representation of gingival tissue. By integrating KeyMask with Carbon’s advanced M-series printers, dental labs can achieve a high level of precision and efficiency in their restoration workflows.

“Carbon’s partnership with Keystone to validate KeyMask for our M-series printers is a testament to our commitment to offering the best materials for digital dentistry,” said Phil DeSimone, CEO and Co-founder of Carbon. “This collaboration enhances our portfolio of dental solutions, providing our customers with the tools to deliver high-quality cases to their customers.”

KeyMask’s flexible yet firm composition offers lifelike simulations of gum tissue for high-quality dental restorations, and dental labs can streamline their digital restoration planning for more accurate and efficient outcomes.

Keystone KeyMask is now available for use with Carbon M-series printers in select regions, including the United States and Europe. Dental labs interested in integrating this advanced material into their restoration processes can contact their local Carbon representative for more information.

Late last year, Carbon introduced three new dental resins to its systems including Pac-Dent Rodin Sculpture, Desktop Health Flexcera Base, and Keystone KeyGuard.
