applying base, if a large quantity is required, apply in layers
rather than one bulk application. Be sure to accelerate between
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
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
