Elipar™ FreeLight 2


Elipar™ FreeLight 2: Spotlight on Innovation

product information

The advantages at a glance:

  • Further increase in light intensity to 1200 mW/cm2
  • Curing in half the time
  • For almost all intraoral light polymerisation indications
  • Additional safety due to better depth of polymerisation
  • Ergonomic design
  • Minimal heat radiation
  • Hygienic for the surgery
  • Autoclavable light guide, can be rotated freely through 360°

Elipar™ prized and proven

Excellent innovations, such as soft-start polymerisation, the latest LED technology, and the continual further development of tried and tested components have made Elipar synonymous with high-performance dental lamps which are the preferred choice of thousands of dentists all around the world. Renowned institutions have awarded the Elipar family numerous prizes. Due to the sophisticated technology and consistently increased light intensity of Elipar FreeLight 2, 3M ESPE is once again setting the standard: with the Elipar Freelight 2, light-curing has become a rapid interim step in the treatment process.

Curing in half the time

With the Elipar FreeLight 2, the recommended curing times of light-cured dental materials can be halved. A light intensity of 1200 mW/cm2 enables the reliable light-curing of dental materials with a camphor-quinone based photoinitiator in almost all direct and indirect indications. In addition, the long-lasting battery ensures a reliable and consistent light level.

Ergonomics for increased user comfort

The ergonomic, functional design offers outstanding user comfort. Because of the balanced weight distribution, Elipar FreeLight 2 sits well in the hand. The slim-line shape allows an unobstructed view of the treatment site. The fibreoptic light guide made of special laminated safety glass is autoclavable, shockproof and can be rotated through 360 degrees.

Reserve capacity ensures improved safety

The high light intensity of the Elipar FreeLight 2 has been improved once again thanks to further development of the LED technology and now enables even better polymerisation depth. With adequate reserve capacity, Elipar FreeLight 2 offers all-important additional safety even in clinically demanding situations, for instance for the cementation of ceramic restorations.

Focus on Speed and Flexibility.

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.

Each material in combination with the curing light
* 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.
