    Great Performance where it clinically counts

    • There are several reasons why a final restoration does not fit when inserted into the patient’s mouth.
      The precision impression plays a key role in this respect – it has to provide an exact copy of the intra-oral situation under any clinical conditions. The still large number of poorly fitting restorations shows that this key requirement for clinical success often is not met.

    • Express 2 VPS impression materials provide a first-class foundation for accurately fitting restorations – saving time and increasing comfort for dentists, dental technicians and patients.

Materials matter: The benefits of our VPS chemistry

Achieve outstanding accuracy and a great fit of the final restoration.

  • Icon showing strength
    Excellent toughness for distortion-free removal from the mouth

    To avoid tearing, an impression material needs both high tensile strength and high elongation potential, allowing it to stretch. The combination of these two parameters is described as toughness. Express 2 material exhibits excellent toughness and resists tearing better than other leading VPS brands tested. That means worry-free mouth removal and less need for costly, time-consuming retakes.

  • Icon showing homogeneous and void-free mixtures
    Homogeneous, void-free mixtures

    With Express 2 Penta™ Putty and Express 2 Penta™ Putty Soft, benefit from automatic mixing and the characteristics of classical hand-mixed putty materials: at the touch of a button, the 3M™ Pentamix™ Automatic Mixing Unit gives you homogeneous, void-free mixtures with reproducible quality – plus true putty consistency.

  • icon showing a water drop
    Great detail reproduction through hydrophilicity and flow behaviour

    Express 2 wash material show the fastest decrease in contact angle and thus the best hydrophilicity in the unset stage, ensuring great detail reproduction – even when blood and saliva are present. The outstanding flow properties ensure optimal coverage of the preparation surface areas.
