This November, Garreco celebrates its 30th year manufacturing quality gypsum and plaster products right here in the United States of America. Our manufacturing facility, located in Heber Springs, Arkansas has been open and producing gypsum products since 1988. For us, it’s not just about being part of a marketing campaign. Manufacturing quality products made in the USA is part of who we are as a company.

We started with gypsum and have since expanded our product lines to include abrasive products such as Resilience, as well as the addition of acrylics, investment materials, and other dental laboratory supplies. Here’s a list of our top 10 selling products that are manufactured in the USA from raw materials all sourced within in the US.

Top 10 USA Made Dental Products:

#10 – Apex™ RZ10

Type IV-R Resin Reinforced Die Stone

Apex™ is a resin reinforced natural gypsum die material, available in two expansion variations making it the perfect choice to complement any technique. Perfect for all crown and bridge applications as well as implant or precision attachment cases. Resin additives eliminate brittleness and add superior external hardness. The exclusive Apex™ flow agent allows for excellent stackability, while promoting free material flow during vibration.

#9 – Orthostone

Type III Base Stone

OrthoStone exhibits the strength and accuracy of a quality base stone, plus special additives resulting in a brilliant white color. The superior color, working properties, and hardness make this the product of choice for those
specializing in orthodontics.

#8 – Resilience™

Acrylic Polishing/Finishing Media

Resilience™ is an all-purpose acrylic polishing media designed for faster and smoother polishing of acrylic appliances. Specially formulated with unique abrasives to cut faster, easier, and smoother than pumice-type products with no scratching or grooving. Resilience™ saves time and does not require a change in your current technique. Kind to your hands and does not give off a bad odor commonly associated with pumice.
