Chairside Die System
Parkell Mach-2 Die-Silicone
Go from impression to top-quality working dies in less than 6 minutes!
- Flows beautifully – better than stone – to create a smoother die and to capture minute detail
- No hand-mixing – inject it directly from the automix cartridge into impression
- Exceptionally hard set – 90+ Durometer
- Slightly flexible, so composite inlays release easily
- Ideal for chairside resin inlays and onlays, fast resin veneers or temporaries
Take your models out of the Stone Age with Mach-2 Die Silicone. It gives you superb working dies in just minutes for indirect composite inlays, chairside denture repairs, and fast resin veneers or temporaries.
Here is how:
Using a conventional impression gun, inject Mach-2 directly from the automix cartridge into an alginate or reversible hydrocolloid impression. There’s no mixing. Mach-2 is highly fluid, so it flows beautifully to capture exceptional detail. As soon as you’ve poured the dies, you create the model base using Super-fast Blu-Mousse®. That’s all there is to it. Two minutes later, you’re ready to remove the finished model and separate the die.
Mach-2 silicone is hard, but also slightly flexible. Due to this flexibility, composite inlays release easily. Mach-2 flows better than stone, so it creates a smoother die. It’s also more durable – it won’t chip, abrade or crack. You can trim the Mach-2 die using a common razor blade or Bard Parker. There’s no need for burs and no dust to clean up.
Mach-2 sets to an opaque, highly reflective colour. When you direct your curing light at an inlay’s occlusal surface, the transmitted light bounces off the prep walls and floor to promote polymerization from all directions.
NOTE: If you are a fan of heat tempering to create the best possible physical properties, you can pop the composite restoration into a toaster oven at 250F/121C for 10 minutes while they’re still sitting on the dies.
Because it’s formulated using polyvinyl siloxane chemistry, Mach-2 bonds to virtually any vinyl impression material. Mach-2 sets on the bench in about 2 minutes, but in the mouth it begins setting almost immediately.
Mach-Slo is designed for those who prefer a little more working time. It is exactly like Mach-2, only with a slightly slower set – about 90 seconds, making it an excellent choice for intra-oral use or for making complex models.
