Directions to use:
1. Paste Pak Cartridge Loading
a. Make sure that the piston is completely retracted into the dispenser.
Note : To retract the piston, hold both the slide block and release lever (on the underside of the dispenser) with fingers and pull them back together.
b. Load the cartridge into the Paste Pak Dispenser. 1) Ensure the mark on the cartridge lines up with the mark on the Paste Pak Dispenser as illustrated. 2) Then turn the cartridge fully to the right position. Note : To remove the cartridge, retract the piston fully and turn the cartridge back to the marked positions.
c. After cartridge loading, slide the release lever forward until it stops. a) Push the front of the release lever. b) Do not push the upper side.
a. Remove the cartridge cover. b. Depress the lever to dispense the required amounts of paste onto the mixing pad.
Note : 1) Before dispensing the first material from a new cartridge or when dispensing after a long interval, bleed the pastes in order to prevent the incorporation of air bubbles into the material. 2) The finger grip can be moved forwards or backwards to change the quantity of material to be dispensed.
c. While depressing the lever, level and cut off the extruded material from the tips of the cartridge by moving the cartridge and dispenser to an upright position on the mixing pad. 1. Level and cut off material. 2. Depressing the lever. When the lever is released after dispensing, residual pastes at the tips are retracted into the cartridge. Replace the cartridge cover. Note : 1) If any surplus paste is retained on the cartridge tips after dispensing, remove with gauze, etc. 2) The amount of residual material in the cartridge can be confirmed by the position of the slide block on the underside of the dispenser. As the cartridge has translucent tips, the residual amount can also be confirmed by the position of the inner plunger seen through the tips. 3) Do not drop the dispenser with the cartridge. Otherwise the cartridge may be damaged.
After dispensing, incorporate and spread the material out in a thin layer on the mixing pad using a plastic spatula. Mix thoroughly, with lapping strokes, for 10 seconds. Be careful not to incorporate air bubbles. Note : 1) The two pastes are similar in color, so mix with care. When a large amount is required for 2 – 4 crowns, mix for 15 seconds. 2) The working time is 3 minutes from the start of mixing at 23°C (73.4°F). Higher temperatures will shorten working time. 3) Do not mix GC FujiCEM pastes with other materials.
