Zirconomer Improved defines a new class of restorative that promises the strength and durability of amalgam with the protective benefits of glass ionomer while completely eliminating the hazard of mercury.
This high strength restorative has been specially reinforced with nano-zirconia fillers that not only impart remarkable mechanical properties to the restoration for posterior load bearing areas but also provides enough translucency to match natural tooth.
Powder / Liquid Ratio:
3.6 / 1.0 (2 Scoops : 1 Drop)
Working Time 23˚C :
1 min 30 sec (from start of mixing)
Net Setting Time 37˚C:
3 mins (from end of mixing)
High strength and durability like Silver amalgam with protective benefits of glasionomer.Improved edge strength and marginal adaptation High translucency, flexural modulus and compressive strength.
Improved mixing and handling characteristics.
Excellent resistance to abrasion and erosion.
Sustained high fluoride release for anti-cariogenic benefits especially in cases with high caries risk.
Exceptional for minimally invasive procedures as it chemically bonds to enamel and dentin while displaying tooth-like co-efficient of thermal expansion, which results in low interfacial stresses and minimizes potential for failure.
Packable and condensable like amalgam without the hazard of mercury or the risk of corrosion, expansion and thermal conductivity.
