With so many options to choose from, selecting the right impression material can feel like a daunting task.
Luckily, the 3M™ Imprint™ 4 family makes it easy. One name to remember in your practice, a wide range of options for your patients.
All 3M™ Imprint™ 4 products are designed to ensure a fast and efficient impression-taking process.
So you reliably get spot-on impressions for many indications, without any hassle.
All VPS is hydrophobic on its own.
3M™ Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Material uses a unique and synergistic system that combines proven surfactant with a novel wetting enabler to achieve super hydrophilicity.
Due to the unique chemistry, the setting time doesn't start until the end of the working time. That means you'll have enough time to load and seat the tray, whether you use a 1-step or 2-step impressioning technique.
Less stress for patients! The shortest intra-oral setting time of 1:15 min among leading VPS fast-setting impression materials due to active self-warming technology. This speeds up the setting reaction which means shorter chair time.
Imprint 4 material is super-hydrophilic and displaces moisture right from the start in the unset state. This allows the material to reproduce accurate details even in a moist environment—giving you ultimate precision and confidence.
