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
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
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
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.
