Our Impregum™ Quick Polyether Impression Materials and our Pentamix™ 2 Mixing Unit create a reliable and robust system

Provides better initial hydrophilicity than VPS

The innovative Soft polyether from 3M ESPE displaces moisture right from the first contact with tissue - when it counts - for precise impressions! Preferred over VPS for excellent detail reproduction in a wet environment!1

3M ESPE
Contact angle measurement is a method frequently used to determine hydrophilicity. These results show why Impregum™ Garant™ L DuoSoft™ polyether is indispensible for dentists who value getting preceise impessions the first time. 1

The "snap-set behaviour" reduces stress for dentists and dental assistants

Impregum™ Penta™ Soft /-Quick polyether is ultra-forgiving. The snap-set behaviour - which is typical for polyether - ensures the material will not start setting before the working time ends, and when it does, it does so immediately. The result is a restoration which fits precisely without distortion.
