Chairside Adjustment Kit Instructions
The most important part of polishing is to allow the materials to work!
Do not try to polish at very high speeds as this generates excessive heat and can melt both the polish and the material being polished.
Do not apply heavy pressure on the brush or buff when polishing. A light pressure at moderate speed is most effective.
Use the Silicone Cutter Polishers to remove excess acrylic, such as a reduction of high spots. Silicone Cutter Polishers are indicated for adjusting and polishing acrylic denture base resins. They may be used in either a slow speed straight handpiece or a dental lathe.
The polishers should be used at speeds of 10,000 to 15,000 RPM with moderate pressure (between 0.3 and 2 N). The polishers consiste of silicone rubber, pigments, and abrasives. The shanks are stainless steel. They are not intended for use in the mouth. Do not exceed 15,000 RPM. Breathing and eye protection should be worn during use.
The 244 BLUE Polish on the Goat hair brushes will remove minor scratches and provide a final high shine polish on acrylic resin, composites, gold, non-precious metals, chrome, and flexible thermoplastics. You may use either a lathe or a handpiece to polish.
Run the lathe or handpiece at a moderate speed -5,000 to 10,000 RPM. Excessive speed will diminish polishing efficiency and burn the material to be polished.
Apply very light pressure o the brush. Excess pressure will smear the polish and reduce the efficiency of polishing.
The 244 BLUE POLISH is water soluble, so any excess may easily be removed with warm soapy water or a steam cleaner.
