addition silicone impression material

addition silicone impression material

An elastic final impression material used to construct cast restorations, dental prostheses, and other appliances. It is made from a vinyl polysiloxane paste mixed with a platinum salt catalyst.

CAUTION!

Wearing latex gloves inhibits the setting of addition silicone impression material. The contamination is so pervasive that touching the tooth with the latex will inhibit setting.
