    Dear friends;

    Does anyone have a table or list of which Zi powder leaders manufatures make their disks (AG, ZZ, Kuraray, Ivoclar, ...)?
    Thanks !

    All of them? So, all well known blanks are pretty much the same (Katana UT, Zolid FX, Prettau Anterior, ...)?

    as any gold alloy yes are they all the same holly bullshit no one is the powder ,one is how clean is it ,where does it come from , grain size ,which additional materials in which grain size , , how its spray granulated , colored, pressed. pre heated and so on and on.
    its like French red wine they are all red .

    Cadfan is an expert ;-)

    You have to taste to appreciate the difference, Tosoh is like Chardonnay grape variety , you have from Australia, south africa, California, Argentina, Spain, Canada, Argentina, France, all are white like Zi but all are different .....

    As a wine enthusiastic, I loved the explanation. But allow me to disagree at one point: if the powder is the same (same terroir), the difference comes from the manufacturer care (chateau). So, it’s better to say that they are all “Bordeaux” or “Brunellos”; same grape from the same soil, but processed in distinct houses.

    By the way, which one do you prefer to do anatomic crowns and bridges in terms of previsibility and easiness of staining?

    if its from the same terrorire yes right side Gironde but they arent more like simple example intel core 9 i down to the N processors terrorire is only one small point same as the name intel you still need additional things like vinification and so on the thing is do you trust a better looking product from a new manufacturer could this be better than one from an experienced or does the experienced only take more care about his characteristics , i personnel buy only from big long run experienced even industrial ceramic producers.and there are only a few.

    talked at the start ten years ago a few times with a Dr hes ceramic material sience 90% information outside is BS: marketing blabla a bit like driving a Diesel.
