Visalys® Core, a new product from Kettenbach LP, is said to represent the next generation of core build-up materials. This dual-curing core build-up material with unique Active-Connect-Technology (ACT) reportedly ensures a reliable bond with all common adhesives without an additional activator.
Visalys® Core is the first core build-up material from Kettenbach. The fluoride-containing, dual-curing composite was developed for the fabrication of radiopaque core build-ups and core fillings and for cementing root posts.
The product incorporates Active-Connect-Technology (ACT), which is unique in the market. This enables the material to bond actively with all common light-curing and dual-curing, single-step and multi-step adhesives without an additional activator. The advantage for users is that it allows them to use the bonding agent they are used to-no matter whether it is a light-curing or dual-curing or a single- or multi-bottle system.
Visalys® Core is said to ensure easy and reliable handling with excellent positional stability. At the same time, it is designed to exhibit good flowability and low extrusion force. The excellent compressive strength reportedly results in a stable monoblock and a secure bond. Optional light-curing allows the procedure to be continued immediately; reliable self-curing provides for dependable strength even on the cavity floor and in root canals. Excellent polishing characteristics are said to ensure precise preparation; even without light-curing, the smear layer is minimal. The product is also free of Bisphenol A and its derivates.
Visalys® Core is available in dentin and white shades in a 5 ml double syringe and in a 25 ml cartridge. For detailed information about Visalys® Core, visit the Kettenbach website at www.kettenbachusa.com.
