DUX Dental introduces high-quality IMAGE Alginate for half the cost

Sept. 26, 2013

DUX Dental has introduced a new, value-priced dental alginate that will help dental and orthodontic practices realize a 50 percent savings on impression material while producing excellent results. IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate is a high-quality impression material that creates a smooth, glass-like surface to ensure precision impressions and molds.

"IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate delivers impeccable, detailed impressions that are easy to read at a cost that helps keep overhead down,” said Stacey Williams, director of marketing and sales at DUX Dental. “Dentists and orthodontists can produce quality impressions that have silicone-like readability and appease the patient with quick setting times and a pleasant scent.”

The alginate is dust-free, green-colored, mint-scented and 100 percent biodegradable. Fast Set IMAGE Alginate sets in two minutes, while the Regular Set sets in three minutes. Both provide 100 hours of dimensional stability when sealed in a plastic bag so the impression pour can be delayed.

The following IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate product packages are available now through dental dealers in U.S. and Canada:

IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate: One 500-gram pouch of alginate. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP): $9.00
IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate Fast Set Starter Pack: Includes one 500-gram pouch of alginate and one mixing canister, powder scoop and water vial. MSRP: $10.10

Editor’s Note: High-resolution photos of IMAGE Dust-Free Alginate are available at DUX Dental’s online media center. Prices are Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices. Dealer pricing may vary.
