An evolution in the elaboration of dental models.
If you are tired of cleaning the dust that plaster leaves in your laboratory, if you have to be always trying a new plaster to see if you can speed up the production of your models, if you cannot find a plaster that can reproduces the impression of your models faithfully to ensure that your work will be as good as you planned, you should try NOVOX.
YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LABORATORY!
The NOVOX is not only another product to make your dental models but a tool with countless advantages to speed up, improve and add much more quality to you work.
INSTRUCTIONS OF USE
STEP BY STEP
If you read the INSTRUCTIONS OF USE on the package, then you know that BEFORE OPENING your NOVOX kit, you have to check that the tools and pattern are completely FREE of any RESIDUAL WATER and HUMIDITY.
It is essential to use the blades for easier handling, HOMOGENISATION, to PRESERVE and especially to SAVE the product.
First of all, put on disposable gloves.
With NOVOX in your hands, mix the base using the blades during 30 seconds to homogenize it.
Put the necessary amount of NOVOX BASE in the measuring cup to elaborate the model.
Note: it may vary between 20 and 40 ml.
Define the amount according to the size of the model and add the Activator in the measuring cup following the proportion:
For each 10 ml of Base + 2,7 ml of Activator. (Proportion in grams: 2g of Activator for each 10g of Base).
Ex.: If you use 30 ml of Base you must add 8,1 ml of Activator.
Remember: Use only models of addition and condensation silicone.
Note: Never put the Activator inside the NOVOX recipient.
If you want to customize your model with a special color, add the desired color of Novox Die and mix all ingredients for 30 seconds, then pour into the pattern.
You have 1 minute and 30 seconds to pour it after mixing with the Activator.
Wait 30 minutes for the completely solidification and ready!
- Use solid petroleum jelly to insulate the die.
- If you want to make the base of the model with another color, wait 15 minutes until it dries and add the new mix with the desired color.
- You can also make it with a plaster base, just wait for the setting and then create mechanical retentions in the model with the drill
Mechanical properties at 23ºC (1)
|Hardness||ISO 868-85||Shore D||80|
|Elasticity in flexure||ISO 178-93||MPa||5.000|
|Bend Strength||ISO 178-93||MPa||50|
|Traction resistance||ISO 527-96||MPa||24|
|Compression resistance||ISO 604-97||MPa||62|
*(1): mean values obtained in standardized samples / Solidification 7 hours at 23ºC
|Time mixing Novox base + Activator||Manually 30 seconds
With the mixer 15 seconds
|Working time||2 minutes|
|Solidification time||30 minutes|
|Linear shrinkage (until 50 mm thickness)(2)||0,0%|
|Linear expansion (until 50 mm thickness)(2)||0,0%|
*(2): as in the dental models the dimensions of the dental elements are smaller than 50 mm, there is not enough material to cause a considerably exothermic reaction, so the contraction and expansion is negligible and tends to be zero.
Where NOVOX may NOT be poured?
NOVOX may not be poured on Polyester (Permalastic, Impregum) and Alginates.
Why NOVOX may not be poured on alginate?
That the alginate is made from water, and water cannot, in any way, be used when preparing Novox.
Is it easy to cut Novox?
Yes, it can be cut easily, using a normal humid or dry trimmer or the same cut-off wheels used for plaster.
How to make a Novox die model?
The procedure is the same of plaster but it is easier and with more predictability.
What type of burs should I use?
You can use the same burs that you use for plaster (carbide, tungsten, diamond, etc.)
Can I add the Activator in the Novox container?
NO, you should never add the Activator inside the Novox container; the product would be completely solid what would disable the Novox permanently. The Activator must only be added in the measuring cup when preparing the model individually with the indicated proportion of: 2,7 ml of Activator for each 10 ml of Base (2g of Activator for each 10g of Base). For any questions, refer to the product’s instructions of use or you can also watch the video of preparation or see the step by step instructions on the website.
Does the product can get out by possible openings?
Yes, Due to its fluidity it is recommended to seal the pattern with wax or plasticine.
