ColorCube

Titanium anodization unit
ColorCube provides an inexpensive, fast and simple way for dental laboratories to color titanium parts for prosthetics.

The color is obtained by anodization which creates a coloring layer that is extremely thin and is fully integrated with the underlying titanium base material. The color will not chip or peel like paint and it is so thin that it does not effectively change the geometry of the part. The color layer is bio-compatible and suitable for use with implants.

ColorCube helps dental laboratories reduce cost and production time and makes it easy to fit the individual needs and requirements of each patient.

Coloring Titanium

Why color titanium? Some ceramic materials used for dental prosthetics are somewhat transparent. This means that coloring the titanium abutment before the crown is added will make it easier to obtaining a more natural looking prosthetic.

Prosthetic parts that are directly visible may be colored to blend in with the surroundings in which they sit. It is also possible to give a single item multiple colors.

Color coding of components can also be very helpful for identifying sizes and types of parts that fit together. This helps reduce the risk of errors during the prosthetic procedure.



How it works The color is obtained by anodization, in which the thickness of a naturally occurring oxide layer is increased, causing a change in the way the surface reflects light.

The perceived color of an implant will vary with the thickness of the oxide layer, and a large range of colors can be obtained.
The oxide layer is extremely thin (< 600nm) and is fully integrated with the underlying titanium substrate.

The color will not chip or peel like paint and it is so thin that it does not effectively change the geometry of the part. The oxide layer is bio-compatible and suitable for use with implants.

Product Details

Design and use We develop, design and produce the ColorCube in Denmark. It is the outcome of years of development and with several years of experience with engineering dental prosthetics. The result is a beautifully simple and functional design. It presents both an elegant solution to existing manufacturing problems as well as creating new possibilities that will help shape the future of dental prosthetics.

Much care has been taken to create a product that has a minimal footprint on both the laboratory-bench and the environment. ColorCube is easy and safe to use and the coloring process does not require any kind of harmful chemicals.

Using ColorCube is very simple. The titanium part is placed in the process chamber. The button on the front corresponding to the desired color is pressed, and anodization is done in 30 seconds. The intensity of the color can be varied using adjustment knobs.

Consumables and economic aspects Titanium fixtures and anodizing liquid are used for the coloring process and can be ordered via. e-mail. Comparing with the price and process time of doing out-of-house coloring, ColorCube is fast and inexpensive. Typically, it will have paid for itself in few months and will dramatically reduce overall production time.
