Heliosit Orthodontic is a light-cured, highly translucent luting composite for orthodontic brackets (made either of metal or ceramic material).
After the enamel has been etched with phosphoric acid (37%), Heliosit Orthodontic is applied to establish a sound bond (metal and ceramic surfaces have to be pre-treated according to manufacturer’s directions).
The monomer matrix consists of urethane dimethacrylate,Bis-GMA and decandiol dimethacrylate (85 wt%). The filler consists of highly dispersed silicon dioxide (14 wt%). Additional contents are catalysts and stabilizers (1 wt%).
