Plastic Filling Instruments

Processing: - Process in cassettes or trays with instrument rails to avoid scratches on the surface from other pointed instruments. Maintenance: - Residues of Filling Materials and etching products must be removed immediately. - Plastic Filling Instruments are designed with an extra smooth surface, in order to provide a better handling with composite materials. Scratches that are not visible might cause composite materials to stick to the rougher surface. Cleaning / Disinfection: - For resin or silicone products do not use detergents or disinfectants containing phenols or iodophors. Sterilization: - Dry Heat is explicitly not compatible with Instruments with resin handles (handle #8), with resin or Silicone components, inserts on any instruments, or with resin cassettes.

Resin Instruments, Resin Components or Resin Cassettes

Retractors, Metal

Processing: - Removable retractor tips must be disassembled from the handle before cleaning/disinfection and sterilization.
