  • control

    Having adequate working time is important for accurate results. Imprint 4 material gives you all the working time you need.

    Due to the unique chemistry, the setting time doesn't start until the end of the working time. That means you'll have a sufficient amount of time to load and seat the tray—no stressful race against the clock. Whether you use a 1-step or 2-step impressioning technique, Imprint 4 material puts you in control of your everyday crown and bridge cases.

  • speed

    Choosing a fast-setting impression material minimise the time the impression is in the mouth—this reduces stress for patients, and reduces the possibility of errors.

    Imprint 4 VPS Impression Material offers the fastest intra-oral setting time among leading VPS fast-setting impression materials,1 offering a real time savings. How?

    The innovative active self-warming feature accelerates setting time.

    Once in the mouth, the material warms up to body temperature (37°C/98.6°F). This speeds up the setting reaction which results in a short intra-oral setting time.

  • Precision

    Super hydrophilicity for accurate detail

    Imprint 4 material is super-hydrophilic, and displaces moisture right from the start in the unset state. That allows the material to reproduce accurate details even in a moist environment—giving you ultimate precision and confidence.2
