New option for coating Magnets and Implants: Dental Resin

Here is a little blog (actually not that little) I've written regarding a new coating: Chemical Cure Composite Resin-Based Dental Restorative Material. So far, it's pretty awesome stuff. Yes, it does contain BPA; however; studies show that once the resin is cured there is nearly no leeching that occurs. Furthermore... it's a hell of a lot safer than hot glue and far less likely to crack due to impact.

Augmentation Limitless


  • I'm going to write up the implantation procedure next. Videos etc.
  • Ok, so I've coated an N52 that already had parylene and polished it down. I've made quite a few, but it took a bit to get my technique down and now my finished product is significantly better. Am going to soak for 2 weeks and implant.
  • I'm aware this is one hell of a necropost, but can you give more info on the dental resin you used?

    The link is dead now and i'm interested in this material.
  • I can help you out with the link:

    Just use ctrl-F and type resin. It takes you to the spot you're looking for.
  • I'm pondering this stuff:

    Fluoride release is something that concerns me, but i'm probably also missing something else.
  • To be more specific i'm planning on using this on top of a layer of paint on insulation to protect the electronics, also from amazon:
  • @cassox can you give some input on this?
  • Totally. I'll be going through the board tonight and responding to many a things.
  • @Cassox is this the stuff you were playing with at grind fest?
  • No. This is something else entirely. It had a very rough surface - great for bacterial adherence. I had one implanted for a long time, but forgot about this stuff because the vacuum dep stuff was so much better. I'll reexplore this.
  • Aye. I remember whenever this was first discovered. Here's a quick rundown of everything I remember about Cassox's experiments with it.

    Pros:  Extremely hard, Holds up well in most cases.

    Cons:  Easy for bacteria to adhere, because of the rough surface, Grinding down the excess and rough edges with a dremel sometimes produces enough heat to damage the magnet itself. It's also a bit of a pain to go about grinding on one of these anyway. It's thicker than vacuum deposited materials, making magnets less effective in some ways (But it might be good for whatever application you're thinking of). 

    I suppose you could polish it by hand, if you went slowly. On the other hand, if you made a mold and bought a bunch of resin, you could make a nice, hard block of resin around your implant, and then polish it or seal it however you please.
  • The stuff on the amazon link, if I was to use that and polish it then soak it in iso alcohol + chlorhexidine before implantation would it have any major issues for my implantable edison project?
