VOCO has introduced x-tra base.The product is a fast-setting bulk fill posterior composite that allows curing of 4-mm layers in only 10 seconds when using the universal shade. This is 50% faster than the leading brand. The 75% filled x-tra base has a low shrinkage stress and low shrinkage that, combined with its high compressive strength (350 MPa) and flexural strength (133 MPa), makes it a foundation for posterior fillings. New liquid fluoride varnish does not interfere with bleaching proceduresX-tra base can be used in the open and closed sandwich technique. The self-leveling effect allows easy adaption to the cavity walls. X-tra base is highly radiopaque (350% Al) for easy X-ray identification and available in VOCO’s patented nondripping syringe or unit dose caps with extra long bendable metal tip in universal or A2 shade.
