Dental Ventures - ZAPIT BASE
applying base, if a large quantity is required, apply in
layers rather than one bulk application. Be sure to accelerate
When accelerating use a fine mist.
To ensure a smooth surface, apply accelerator first, then
base. This action will cause setting from the inside out.
Eliminate the possibility of a warped bridge due to wax
shrinkage. Use a razor to section the abutments of a bridge.
Place a drop of Zapit in each joint and apply accelerator
to the joint on both sides. Zapit will preserve the relationship
without the shrinkage and stress associated with cooling
wax. Wax can then be applied over the Zapit for final contour.
Should a nonparallel abutment situation exist, the Zapit
joint will crack upon removal of the waxed bridge identifying
the problem before casting.
Keeping Zapit Tips working like new all the time is very
easy. When a Tip clogs, and we know it will, simply place
the clogged tip into the bottle of TIP CLEANER. Place the
supplied clean tip on the bottle. When it becomes clogged,
remove the now clean tip from the TIP CLEANER bottle and
insert the clogged one. Repeat this technique as required.
Using all the Zapit Base you paid for can be accomplished
by fabricating a little stand/holder of plaster or calling
DVA for one. The holder should place the Zapit Base bottle
in a horizontal position with the tip end angled slightly
below the horizontal when not in use. The remaining base
material will accumulate in the corner area of the bottle
next to the tip, providing a shorter distance for the material
to flow into the tip.
Painting on Zapit Accelerator with the felt tip applicator
pen may be preferred to spraying. The Accelerator pen provides
for the controlled application of Zapit Accelerator to a
specific area only prior to the application of Zapit Base.
Use Zapit as a fast spacer for bleaching trays.
Loose or rocking dies can be quickly stabilized with Zapit.
Apply a separator (VSS) to the interproximal walls, below
the margin of the loose die. Make certain the die is properly
seated. Apply a small amount of Zapit Base in the saw cut
area just below the margin. The Zapit Base should wick in
and be suspended within the joint. Apply Zapit Accelerator
into the joint area from both sides of the die and allow
to set for at least one minute. The stabilized, lubricated
die is now removable with the hardened Zapit Base filling
the joint and adhering to adjacent wall.
