Flexible material for the fabrication of Gingiva masks.
Asiga’s DentaGUM is a flexible pink material developed to replicate the patient’s gingiva and an essential component when producing a dental implant case. Asiga DentaGUM offers excellent accuracy and rebound.
Whether you are placing an implant and need to see tissue compression or would like a more realistic / complete model, Asiga’s DentaGUM is your solution.

Asiga DentaGUM is intended to be used in combination with DLP based 3D printers (i.e. Asiga Max Series or Asiga Pro Series) that support Asiga resins. Printer and resin must be optimized with respect to each other in order to produce complete and precise printed parts. If the printer and resin are not optimized with respect to each other this may have an adverse effect on the accuracy and physical quality of printed parts. DLP based 3D printers and post-curing lightboxes make use of a light source to polymerize the Asiga resin. Therefore, operators are advised to wear UV protective glasses when operating a 3D printer and/or lightbox. Differences in colour nuance may occur due to: production in batches; inadequate shaking and mixing of the original packaging before use; inadequate stirring in the DentaGUM resin before use; insufficient post-curing.
Asiga DentaGUM should not be used for any other purpose than as a 3D print resin for the manufacturing of gingiva masks. Any deviation from this instruction for use may have an adverse effect on the chemical and physical quality of Asiga DentaGUM. In case of an allergic reaction, please contact a medical physician.
Ensure the 3D printer is clean prior to use, including the imaging area and any optical surfaces. Ensure the material tray is clear of solid debris prior to commencing a print. The presence of solid particles in the resin may cause deformation or failure of the printed objects. Nitrile gloves should be worn at all times when handling Asiga liquid resins up until the finishing step. Avoid contact with skin. If contact with skin occurs, wash thoroughly with cold soapy water. If contact with eyes occur, remove any contact lenses and flush with cold water and seek immediate medical assistance.
In Bottle: Agitate/shake bottle vigorously prior to pouring for at least one minute.
In Material Tray: Stir material with a soft spatula. Take care not to damage the film of the Material Tray. This step is necessary to re-disperse the (possible) pigment sediment from the bottom of the vessel. Color deviation and print failures may occur if insufficiently mixed.
Ensure the temperature of the resin is between 15 and 30°C / 59 and 86°F and prevent exposure to direct sunlight. Pour the resin into the material tray of the 3D printer.
Wash parts in IPA 98%+ pure (Isopropyl alcohol) in a well ventilated area. Best results are achieved when using a pre and post wash. 1. Using an ultrasonic cleaning device:
Pre-wash bath: 30 minutes.
Post-wash bath: 10 minutes. Important: Ensure a dedicated bath is used for this material. Do not wash in baths that have previously been used for other materials. Allow parts to dry thoroughly before post-curing.
1. Post-Curing results in firmer parts is optional.
2. After washing and drying, allow the printed parts to rest for at least 10 minutes to ensure the printed parts are free of alcohol residue.
3. Place the printed parts into a UV curing unit for final polymerization for 20 minutes.
4. If using the “NK Optik G171” post-curing system, expose for 2 x 2000 flashes, turning the parts over between flash cycles. Post-curing is a UV-light treatment to ensure that DentaGUM printed parts obtain optimal polymer conversion. Through this the residual monomer is reduced to a minimum and the required mechanical properties are obtained. We advise use of the Asiga Flash post-curing unit. Place parts inside the G171 Otoflash chamber on the support mesh, do not use a plastic tray inside the chamber. Inert gas is not required. Please see Asiga Flash Unit user guide.
Boil DentaGUM parts in fresh drinking water for 60 minutes. Boiling reduces surface tack and helps achieve optimal physical properties
Store the resin in the original packaging at room temperature in a dry, cool and dark area. Close the packaging after each use. The expiry date of the product is mentioned on the product label along with the lot number. Store on printer for up to 4 weeks with hood closed or store in bottle for up to 24 months in a cool dark place. The product performance is no longer guaranteed once the expiry date is exceeded. Do not expose to UV-light. Standard transport conditions apply to this product. There are no restrictions for transport related to hazardous substances
Asiga resin in its polymerized form is not environmentally harmful thus can be disposed of in general waste. Asiga resin in its liquid state should be treated as chemical waste. Special disposal requirements are applicable, check with your local, federal, or other regulatory agencies for disposal requirements.
Asiga DentaGUM is available in 1 colour only: Pink, 1kg.
