Superior Fatigue Resistance

When compared against popular brands of fiber posts, the Biolight® DRILL-FREE post material has shown statistically superior resistance to breakdown from repeated cyclical stresses. This type of cyclical testing shows the ability of a post to stand up to the intraoral rigours of continual flex during mastication.

POST (Brand) TEST DURATION # OF CYCLES
Biolight® DUAL 12 DAYS, 23H 3,000,000*
Biolight® ST 12 DAYS, 17H 3,000,000*
FibreKor® 3H, 52 min 41,760 (failed)
ParaPost® Fiber Lux™ 2H, 42 min 29,160 (failed)

*The tests were stopped once 3 million cycles were reached.

Tested to 3,000,000 cycles of resistance to failure in fatigue testing

Superior Shear Modulus

A recent independent university study comparing the shear modulus of various fiber posts produced these results:


Force required to BREAK post (MPa)

Biolight® DUAL: 102.87 MPa
ParaPost® Taper Lux: 86.12 MPa
FRC Postec® Plus: 90 MPa
RelyX™ Fiber Post: 85.94 MPa

Superior Bond

In a head-to-head independent study, when compared against an epoxy resin fiber post, the Biolight® DUAL material showed statistically superior bond to popular self-adhesive resin cements.

In another comparative post study, SEM revealed that the Biolight® DUAL material exhibits more surface roughness that all other posts, which contributes to the superior bonding ability.

Biolight® DUAL offered the same adhesion without any surface treatment, or with treatment of either alcohol or H2O2 and silanization for 60 seconds.

Superior Radiopacity

In an independent university study, The Biolight® DUAL material against exhibited superior radiopacity to all other fiber posts tested:


Radiopacity of fiber posts

Biolight® DUAL: 205.90
FRC Postec® Plus: 106.67
RelyX™ Fiber Post: 88.04
ParaPost® Taper Lux: 64.67

Radiopacity of fiber posts
