Genuine dentin feeling for precise preparations
LuxaCore Z Dual is the preferred, premium composite for core build-ups and post cementation with dentin-like cuttability to ensure a controlled and a precise preparation of the margin. The smooth transitions allows for groove-free preparations without any undercuts.
Its combination of zirconia filler and DMG patented nanotechnology significantly improves strength, flowability and physical properties, making it ultra-strong and reliable; it's the ultimate in resin technology for excellent fitting, long-lasting restorations and happy patients alike.
Essential to any core build-up clinical case are post and etch adhesive systems. The LuxaPost composite post and the LuxaBond-Total Etch adhesive system provide dentists with all he needs for a stress free procedure.
LuxaCore Z Dual is closer to natural dentin than the competition in terms of cuttability and, more specifically, the proportion of zirconia gives it excellent compressive strength. This particular property ensures top-quality, natural restorations – confirmed in tests, as shown in the graphs on the right.
Excellent flow properties.
The material's outstanding flow properties guarantee optimum adaptation to the shape of cavity walls and posts. The thin film thickness of just 20 μm is ideal when used for post cementation. (According to ISO 4049 the limit for precision cement is 25 μm).

Fewer materials = a more reliable solution.
Used as a single material for core build-up and post cementation, LuxaCore Z Dual simplifies the process and creates reliable restorations.
It can be used with any pre-silanized post, like LuxaPost. This glass fiber reinforced composite post has a similar flexural modulus to LuxaCore Z Dual and natural dentin, making it the perfect product partner.
Using fewer, but perfectly matched materials delivers a very stable monoblock, avoiding stresses in the sensitive system comprised of tooth, post, cement, and core build-up material.

Frequently Asked Questions
The material can set in two ways: 1. Light curing using a dental curing light, 2. Self curing or chemical curing, which begins automatically after mixing, regardless of whether or not the material is light-cured.
Shorter setting time than in the case of self-curing (20 seconds vs. 5 minutes), with the added assurance that the material will set all the way through even if the layering technique is not used.
No. It is dual cure.
LuxaCore Z Dual is a composite that has been specially developed for core build-up. Its mechanical properties are far superior to those of a glass ionomer cement and adhesion is better and more reliable.
Yes. The low viscosity and dual-cure make it ideal as a post cement. Usage is described in the instructions for use.
One LuxaCore Z Dual cartridge is sufficient for around 25-30 applications.
One Smartmix-syringe is sufficient for around 13-15 applications.
Material that has set in the mixing tips can no longer be used, that’s true. However, there is also some waste on the mixing pad when mixing by hand. If the material is then filled into an application syringe, this leads to further waste of material. In addition, it may also become apparent during application that too much material or not enough material has been mixed. This cannot happen with our Automix system. If all of this is taken into consideration, wastage within the mixing tips is certainly less than that of Handmix products. But what is much more important: Direct application always saves time and effort. In fact, we are working on this issue on an ongoing basis. One step in this direction is the development of the Smartmix system, which has significantly smaller mixing tips.
Yes, the Tips are available both for the 25 ml cartridge as well as for the Smartmix system.
Yes, the Automix-Tips and Intraoral-Tips are the same as for Honigum-Automix Light.
The blue shade is good for porcelain fused to metal, providing that the doctor likes to view where the core material ends and the tooth structure begins. A3 and Light Opaque are esthetic shades that are ideal for building a core under a crown that does not have a metal sub-structure.
Yes. It does not slump. It is thixotropic which means it will stay in place until the doctor initiates movement with an instrument.
Yes. They are both composites. A separating material like Vaseline is recommended to cover the LuxaCore Z Dual tooth prep, when placing Luxatemp during the first setting stage.
