Next generation Pentamix 3 Automatic Mixing Unit offers improved handling at twice the speed.

ST. PAUL, Minnesota--3M ESPE has announced the introduction of the Pentamix 3 Mixing Unit, featuring fast speeds and a small footprint.

Boasting twice the speed of the Pentamix 2 Automatic Mixing Unit, the Pentamix 3 mixing unit offers the ability to utilize a broad range of material viscosities, especially quick setting materials. The unit consistently provides homogenous, void-free automatic mixing at the touch of a button.

"The Pentamix 3 mixing unit enables dentists and assistants to achieve a consistent high-standard of care and accuracy," said Sean Regan, market development supervisor, 3M ESPE. "A faster mix allows for increased working time and less distortion of the impression, reducing stress and benefiting everyone from patients to the dental and lab professionals."

The new high-tech design and easy-to-use features of the Pentamix 3 mixing unit help ensure accurate dispensing of materials and comfortable handling for users. New Penta cartridges for the Pentamix 3 mixing unit feature product names, working times and setting times printed on the cartridge lever for clear visibility when the device cover is closed. This reduces the potential for error and waste.

With a more compact, streamlined design, the Pentamix 3 mixing unit requires less counter space and may be wall-mounted.
