What is E Max?

IPS e.max Press

IPS e.max Press is an innovative lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) ingot for the press technology.

The innovative IPS e.max Press lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS2) provides accuracy of fit, function and esthetics while simultaneously featuring a strength of 400 MPa. The ingots are available in four levels of translucency, two sizes and now also as Impulse ingots. The result is a lifelike esthetic appearance irrespective of the shade of the preparation.
