SplashMax’s Snap Cure Rate Ensures a Precise Impression
- In order to ensure a precise impression, two preconditions have to be fulfilled in the setting process.
First, during working time the material needs to remain flowable. No premature setting should occur in this period.
Secondly, as soon as the tray is placed in the final position the setting process should be as fast as possible.
- As can be seen in the curing profile (green background), the viscosity during working time is hardly increasing, the material remains flowable. Thus smallest details are reproduced properly.
- Once the tray is placed in the patient’s mouth, the setting reaction is accelerated by the thermo-active formulation (snap-set). This is indicated by the sharper increase of the viscosity in the blue shaded part of the curing profile. The material hardens within a short period and becomes fully elastic, thus eliminating inaccuracies due to micro movements.
