Reputable manufacturers of common impression materials point out that in order to avoid technical problems when taking the impression and during subsequent processing the manufacturers instructions must be followed exactly. This particularly applies to the correct proportions (impression / powder / water) when mixing, adherence to mixing, processing and curing times, the use of suitable impression trays and rapid and bubble free pouring of the impression with a compatible plaster often taking
the impression. The quality of the impressions and thus the quality of dental work pieces are considerably influenced by these factors.
Products that are suitable for the disinfection of impressions on applications are CE marked to demonstrate conformity to European directives. The manufacturers recommendation and instruction for the dilution of the disinfectant and immersion time must be adhered to. Disinfectants should not be sprayed onto the surface of impressions as this lessons the effectiveness and creates an inhalation risk.
When disinfecting impressions with perform® -ID particular care should be taken to ensure that the stipulated 10 minute contact time in the immersion both is observed.
Do not store the sachets above room temperature. The granulate is stable in the sealed sachet for 2 years. Do not swallow. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Splashes onto the body should be rinsed off well with water. Working with gloves is recommended, the use solution can have a bleaching effect on sensitive fabrics.
