Supportive glass-fibre composite dental strips and pins for dentistry

Pre-impregnated glass-fibre reinforcement is an advanced composite based on glass fibres embedded into resin or plastic to reinforce high-performance aerospace structures such as the Airbus A380’s vertical stabiliser or the Space Shuttle’s liquid oxygen tabs. A company called ADM has adapted this material to dentistry to produce a product called Dentapreg: supportive dental strips and pins for minimally invasive dentistry. The company is an alumnus of the South Moravian Innovation Centre (JIC) in Brno, a member of the European Space Incubators Network (ESINET).
