Denture care


In addition to Carbopol® polymers, Noveon® polycarbophil, and medical-grade thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), Lubrizol also manufactures tetraacetylethylenediamine (TAED) as a bleach activator for denture cleaners to prevent bacterial build-up.

  • Has been extensively used for more than 30 years in domestic applications.
  • Is used exclusively in powder formats and only reacts when water is added.
  • Is environmentally safe, as it is readily biodegradable.
  • Reacts with peroxide to form a powerful bleaching agent and disinfectant (peracetic acid), effectively cleansing and disinfecting dentures. Bacteria detrimental to oral health can build up on dentures over time if not properly cleaned.
