In 1999, Solmetex® designed the Hg5 Amalgam Separator which quickly became the industry leader in amalgam separation. Solmetex has extensive experience in water chemistry, process engineering, chemical separation science, high performance manufacturing, as well as, federal, state and local regulations governing water and hazardous wastes. What sets Solmetex apart, is that we provide a “Complete Solution for Dental Amalgam Regulation” – by providing the products necessary to meet the amalgam regulation requirements, to providing a simple mail-back recycling program across all products, and then offering an online Compliance Center which houses all Certificates of Recycling, Warranty and Recycling history, available 24/7. Today, Solmetex is proud to be the manufacturer of the Hg5 series of Amalgam Separators which are the gold standard in high performance amalgam separation.
Exemplary Corporate Conduct
“This is the way corporations should behave. After buying a used dental air compressor from a contractor who was clearing out an abandoned dental practice in Manhattan, I was dismayed to find a container with mercury amalgam in the box with the compressor. Rather than send this hazardous waste to a landfill, I contacted the company that made the mercury amalgam separator — Solmetex of Northborough, MA. Solmetex sent me a prepaid shipping container with detailed packing instructions so that I could safely send the mercury amalgam container to them, and at their own considerable expense have the hazardous waste safely disposed.
This is the kind of civic responsibility exhibited by all too few corporations. Solmetex should be rightly proud for having stepped up when they didn’t have to. They deserve special recognition.”
