directions to use
Application of Polofil NHT:
Let the material reach room temperature before application. Apply the chosen shade of Polofil NHT (see shade selection) and adapt it with a suitable instrument. Apply and polymerise fillings of more than 2 mm in layers.
Conventional polymerisation devices are suited for light-curing this material. The light output should be a minimum of 500 mW/cm2 on halogen polymerisation devices and 300 mW/cm2 on LED devices. The curing time is a minimum of 20 s per layer, for the opaque shade OA2 a minimum of 40 s. Hold the light emission tip of the device as close as possible to the surface of the filling. Otherwise, the curing depth may be reduced. Incomplete curing may lead to discolouration of the material, loss of stability of the composite filling and discomfort.
The restoration can be finished and polished immediately after removing the matrices (e.g., fine or extra-fine diamond grinder, polisher). The tooth should be fluoridated as a final step. Polofil NHT can be used for direct and indirect inlays according to customary methods. The physical stability values can be improved by the usual external (additional) curing.
