Knit-Pak+ is a knitted retraction cord manufactured from unique microfibers, distinguished by having very low moisture content. The fibers also reportedly have high durability and retention properties. These attributes create a retraction cord with good absorbency and a pliable structure that resists fraying. Knit-Pak+ offers exact-dosage medicinal loading (AlCl3· 6H2O   0.5mg± 0.1mg/inch), easily packs into sulcus, and will not entangle in burs. Also useful when packing tight gingival tissue, the impregnated aluminum chloride is a  safe and effective hemostatic agent.

In addition, the Knit-Pak+ containers feature a ceramic cutting blade inside the cap that automatically cuts the cord upon closing. The yellow cap identifies the impregnated Knit-Pak+ and a white cap distinguishes the original Knit-Pak non-impregnated cord. Knit-Pak+ is available in six different sizes which are color-coded for quick and easy identification.
