Kettenbach LP, Huntington Beach, Calif, now offers its Silginat® alginate alternative impression material in strawberry scent.

Silginat strawberry is a medium-bodied viscosity, vinylpoly siloxane impression material intended for any application in which the user would normally use an alginate material. Silginat strawberry is designed for a variety of indications including anatomical models, orthodontic appliances, and case study models.
Silginat strawberry was designed with a low-tear resistance to avoid dislodging orthodontic appliances inadvertently.  According to the company, the material has a consistency that resembles alginate and a high-dimensional stability so model impressions can be kept for weeks and poured multiple times. Silginat strawberry is also highly thixotropic and flows properly under pressure.

Silginat strawberry is available in two delivery systems: 362-mL foil bags for Kettenbach’s Plug & Press® Dispenser (5:1 ratio), and 38-mL cartridges (1:1 ratio) with an optimal volume for a single, medium full-arch or two quadrant impressions. Depending on the delivery system, the total set time for Silginat strawberry is 2 minutes, 30 seconds, or 3 minutes.
