Thermo Clone impression material is more temperature-sensitive than other impression materials. This means that as the temperature of the material increases, the setting time decreases. We call this a “thermal set.”
At room temperature, Thermo Clone material stays plastic, with a working time of up to 1:30. Once the tray is placed in the patient’s mouth, the material rapidly begins to set due to the increased temperature. This accelerated setting time means there’s less chance of distortion. See the graph below to view the setting time of Thermo Clone material versus a leading competitor.
Thermo Clone VPS material is
hydrophilic, which means it works best in the oral cavity. The Thermo
Clone material will spread out flat on all moist surfaces, capturing
exact details of the teeth.
High Tear Strength
Thermo Clone is designed to have a
high tear strength, so you can remove the impression confidently from
the patient’s mouth without having to worry about breaks or tears.
Excellent Dimensional Stability
The dimensional stability of Thermo Clone ensures the impression arrives at the lab in the same condition it left your office.
