Voco has introduced Admira Fusion Flow, the first all-ceramic-based flowable direct restorative material with nano-ORMOCER technology.

Admira Fusion Flow is the world's first all-ceramic-based flowable direct restorative material. Based on the same nano-ORMOCER technology as the packable version, Admira Fusion, Admira Fusion Flow offers many of the same advantages. These include up to 50% less shrinkage and shrinkage stress, extremely high color stability, and a new level of biocompatibility.

The combination of nanohybrid technology and ORMOCER (ORganically MODified CERamic) technology means that silicon oxide forms the chemical basis for both the fillers and the resin matrix of Admira Fusion Flow. This "Pure Silicate Technology" is what supports the enhanced physical properties that include its high filler content (74% w/w), low polymerization shrinkage (2.75% by volume), and low shrinkage stress (7.27 MPa). Admira Fusion Flow is also characterized by biocompatibility, as it contains none of the classic monomers—such as bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol A glycidyl methacrylate (bis-GMA), triethyleneglycol-dimethacrylate (TEGDMA), urethane dimethacrylate (UDMA), etc.

Admira Fusion Flow is available in the nonrunning, nondripping NDT syringe patented by Voco. This guarantees safe and precise application without material loss. The material features excellent flow properties allowing easy wetting of cavity walls. With precise thixotropic and flow-on-demand properties, the material only flows under pressure and movement, meaning it remains stable in the cavity following application and modeling. Admira Fusion Flow can be polished effectively and is compatible with all conventional bonding agents.

Admira Fusion Flow is available in 12 shades that have been matched to fit the shade range of the condensable version of Admira Fusion. Furthermore, Admira Fusion Flow offers Bleach Light (BL) and White Opaque (WO) shades for use with unique or special cases, such as bleached teeth and teeth with discolored dentin found in pediatric dentistry.
