NORTHBOROUGH, Mass.—Solmetex has received additional patent protection for its NXT Hg5 amalgam separator collection technology.

Solmetex's newest patent (U.S. Utility Patent No. 10,779.923) covers the design and use of NXT Hg5-compatible amalgam separation collection containers. The ‘923 Patent is in addition to the company's already issued design and utility patent portfolio covering the NXT Hg5 product line.

“Solmetex is recognized as the leading technology provider in dental waste management with over 70,000 systems installed worldwide,” said Solmetex president Kevin Danahy. “With the recently enacted EPA Dental Amalgam Rule regarding the handling of dental waste water, our newest patent is a testament to our unique technology, continuously evolving product offering, passion for environmental responsibility, and on-going partnership with our dental partners and their commitment to improving the communities they live in.”

The EPA Dental Amalgam Rule states that as of July 14, 2020 dental practices are required to install either a ISO 11143:2008 certified amalgam separator or a certified ANSI/ADA Standard No.108 amalgam separator, both at a separation rate of 95%.
