The "Injection Precision Cut" grain structure makes Solera from VISION USA a fast-building porcelain for ceramic...See more restorations, including veneers. This high-fusing porcelain is ideal for use with silver-containing alloys; it's non-greening with a CTE of 13.8-15.2 and produces shade-perfect restorations.
Purge ZR (Zirconia Furnace Decontaminator) is a double-activated ion and oxide-absorbing material that eliminates...See more contaminates that can cause discoloration and porcelain delamination in zirconia copings. For example, the low levels of radioactive materials found in zirconium can build up inside a muffle and cause color problems; with Purge ZR, these radioactive isotopes are absorbed completely out of the furnace. Purge ZR should be used once a week in zirconia alumina or firing furnaces to extend muffle/thermocouple life and maintain thermocouple accuracy. From VISION USA, a Dentrex Co., the Purge ZR kit with Ceramic Crucible contains enough material for 25 cleanings.
VISION USA's Purge Sinter is a decontaminator for your sintering furnace. Contamination builds in the furnace from...See more oxides in coloring agents used to shade zirconia, and these oxides cause greening or yellowing of the zirconia during sintering and can alter temperature readings when they build up on furnace coils. Zirconia also emits radioactive elements that accumulate in the furnace over time. To eliminate those contaminants, use Purge Sinter once a week for 10 minutes at 800°C.
