Efficient use of polymerisation light
In comparison to halogen units, the Elipar FreeLight 2 has a narrow emission spectrum: the polymerisation light can be used more efficiently by the photoinitiator mainly used in dental materials - camphor-quinone - because the emitted wavelength spectrum is concentrated on the initiator’s range of maximal absorption.

Twice as fast as conventional halogen lamps
With an innovative restoration composite such as Filtek Supreme from 3M ESPE, the Elipar Freelight 2 achieves a polymerisation depth of more than 2.0 mm after just 10 seconds; with a classic restoration composite such as Z100 MP from 3M ESPE this is achieved after 20 seconds; with a conventional halogen lamp 40 seconds are required.

* Curing time: 30 sec when using the shades 3M B0.5, C4 and UD
** Curing time: 40 sec when using the dentine shades
|Thermal management without a fan|
Thanks to effective thermal management, the heat which builds up during operation is continually released through the high-quality refined metal housing. Since neither a fan nor ventilation slits are required, the whole surface can be quickly wiped down with disinfectant.
Universal and flexible application
As a high-performance all-rounder for day-to-day dental surgery procedures, Elipar FreeLight 2 can be used for almost all light polymerisation indications. The curing times of 5s, 10s, 15s and 20s can be set freely. In addition, the practitioner can choose between standard light-curing and soft-start polymerisation.
