Kerr Restoratives launches Maxcem Elite Chroma self-etch/self-adhesive resin cement with color cleanup indicator
Kerr Restoratives has announced the launch of Maxcem Elite Chroma, the first self-etch/self-adhesive resin cement offering a color cleanup indicator.
Maxcem Elite Chroma from Kerr Restoratives is a new “smart” self-etch/self-adhesive resin cement featuring a color cleanup indicator.
The smart cement initially has a pink color that fades at the gel state to indicate the optimal time for the clinician to clean up excess cement. The pink color disappears after both self cure and tack cure, allowing for maximum flexibility in its use. In addition to the color cleanup indicator, Maxcem Elite Chroma also features “One-Peel” cleanup, an automix delivery system, no-refrigeration storage, and compatibility with all indirect restorations.
Maxcem Elite Chroma forms a strong and durable bond with a wide variety of dental substrates and is compatible with all indirect restorations—including anterior or posterior ceramics, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns (PFMs), metal restorations, and CAD/CAM materials.
“Maxcem Elite Chroma is a prime example of how we continually provide innovative products to address the evolving needs of the dentist,” said Phil Prentice, vice president of North American marketing for Kerr.
Radiopaque for easy identification on x-rays, the cement is available in a dual-barrel automix syringe system, and it is supplied with single-use automix tips and optional curved dispensing tips to allow the user to deliver the desired volume of cement directly onto the restoration and/or tooth preparations.
To celebrate the launch of Maxcem Elite Chroma, Kerr Restoratives hosted the Kerr Chroma Color Challenge during the 2016 Chicago Midwinter Meeting. At the event, dentists tried Maxcem Elite Chroma and compared it with other cements on the market. DentistryIQ Products Editor Erin Robinson attended the event and had the opportunity to speak with Kim Dyer, senior global product manager for Kerr. Watch the video below to learn more!
