Introducing Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Material
Now, make dental impressions with unprecedented speed, control and precision using Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Material. This innovative advancement in VPS dental impression material offers significant advantages over other fast-setting impression materials. You'll enjoy time-savings, reduced patient stress, and highly accurate details for precise-fitting restorations. Choose from a wide range of viscosities and set/working times — in both cartridge and Penta™ deliveries — to suit your technique and procedure.
Fastest intra-oral setting time1
With Imprint 4 material, you can increase patient comfort, noticeably reduce chair time, and reduce 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 materials put you in control with adequate working time—a factor for reducing clinician stress, 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. This leads to impressions with precise details, precise-fitting restoration and fewer adjustments. 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.
