Imprint 4 Dental Impression Material Fastest intra-oral setting time

Introducing Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Material

 

Speed

Fastest intra-oral setting time1

The Imprint 4 Impression Material cuts intra-oral setting time nearly in half of its predecessor, Imprint 3 Impression Material, and other leading competitive VPS dental impression materials. Imprint 4 noticeably reduces chair time and stress for patients—without reducing the precision of your impression results. Watch the video

Control

Same long working time

It’s easy to get excited about such a drastic reduction in intra-oral setting time – especially when working time is not compromised. Imprint 4 puts you in control with adequate working time—a factor for avoiding problems, and for making good impressions with reliable results. Watch the video

Precision

Super hydrophilicity

Imprint 4 material is super-hydrophilic, and displaces moisture right from the start in the unset state, which helps prevent detail-disrupting voids. Super hydrophilicity results in impressions with precise details that are easy to read, precise-fitting restorations, and fewer adjustments required on final restorations. Watch the video

The lower the contact angle, the higher the hydrophilicity

The lower the contact angle, the higher the hydrophilicity

A contact angle test was conducted to determine which material is most hydrophilic. 20 seconds after the start of mixing, a water droplet was placed on the surface of unset Imprint™ 4 Light VPS Impression Material and competitive VPS impression materials. The spread of the water droplet was observed and the contact angle measured after 2 seconds.
