VisCalor – the world’s first thermoviscous restorative material, now also available for all cavity classes
With VisCalor, a universal variant indicated for all cavity classes is now added to the world’s first thermoviscous bulk fill composite.
While the bulk-fill variant, VisCalor bulk, focuses on simple and quick posterior restorations, VisCalor now makes highly aesthetic anterior restorations possible, thanks to its large range of VITA shades, including an additional, translucent shade.
Both products are based on the unique thermoviscous technology. VisCalor reaches a low viscosity through extraoral heating, allowing for an application that resembles that which you are used to with flowables.
The material flows optimally onto cavity walls and undercut regions. Then the material cools down to body temperature quickly, becomes highly viscous and can be modelled like a classic packable composite without any delay.
Uniting two different viscosities in one product guarantees fast and easy handling, since separate steps such as lining and covering layers are no longer required. In addition, VisCalor is compatible with all conventional bonding agents.
Thus, VisCalor offers not just a high-quality and aesthetic restoration, but also an economical alternative to conventional composites.
VisCalor SingleDose Caps are characterised by their particularly long and slender cannula. This allows direct application, even in hard-to-reach areas and narrow cavities, as well as bubble-free application, which contributes to the durability of the restoration. The longevity and stability of the material are the result of its excellent physical properties: With a filler content of 83% by weight as well as very low shrinkage of only 1.4%, VisCalor is in a class of its own among composite materials.
The Caps Warmer is ideally suited for heating VisCalor and allows for up to 4 caps to be heated at the same time. This is especially advantageous when working with multiple increments or also with multiple shades.
Thanks to its unique technology, VisCalor creates the ideal preconditions for excellent handling, simple application, as well as high-quality and long-lasting restorations of highly aesthetic appearance – for all cavity classes.
