CALCIUM TUNGSTATE - Making dental treatments easier
Calcium tungstate occurs in nature as scheelite and is among the most important luminophores, i.e. when it is exposed to x-rays, it appears blue. This characteristic makes it particularly suitable for use in medical technology. It is used in transfer film in x-ray devices or as a contrast agent.
The calcium tungstate produced by H.C. Starck is used in dental medicine as a component for tooth root fillings. Here it is used as an x-ray contrast agent, enabling optimum dental treatment.
