Energy Chain™ and Elastomeric Thread
RMO®’s Energy Chain™ is the undisputed leader among all brands of orthodontic elastic chain. Energy Chain’s™ unique patented thermosetting resin formula provides superior elastic memory following initial stretch over competitor’s plastic chain. The tough elastic chain material is stain-resistant, tasteless, non-toxic, and latex free. It delivers a uniform continuous force over longer periods of time in comparison to other elastic chains. The same material used to make Energy Chain™ is also used in RMO® Energy Thread™ elastomeric thread and Tough-O® ligatures.
