Dentsply Sirona improved the design of its mixing tip and cartridge system for conventional impressions.

Dentsply Sirona announced an optimized mixing tip and cartridge system for conventional impressions designed to reduce waste and improve quality.

The mixing cube technology results in improved mix quality of the material and reduced material waste is reduced. It allows for a single cartridge to be used for more applications.

The new cartridge and mixing tip system available from Dentsply Sirona seeks to improve these application features for brands like Aquasil Ultra+.

The new application system is currently available and will gradually replace the existing system.

An improved mixing tip design can be fixed to the cartridge using a turning wing and small alignment pin. A corresponding connection mechanism reduces the risk of cross-contamination between the base and catalyst components.

The new integrated 50mL cartridge and mixing tip system requires only a one-time bleed before first use for the life of the cartridge.

In combination with the reduced-volume cannula, material waste can be reduced by up to 64% and increases the number of uses per cartridge by 10 additional applications, according to Dentsply Sirona.

The color-coded cartridges and mixing tips help to connect the cartridges with the appropriate tip. The new mixing tips are compatible with standard application systems already available on the market.
