AVUE AvueGum Putty/Light Body - Addition Silicone Impression Material

Addition Silicone impression material.
An impression material which gives detailed accuracy & excellent margins which the most important requirement of any restoration or prosthesis
Clinically, Improved hydrophilicity of AvueGum
Results in better wettability of the tooth surfaces, and performance in a moist environment offer better-than-ever precision.
Hydrophilicity, or contact angle, is most important when the material is being dispensed intraorally. AvueGum low contact angle along with tooth surface helps ensure an accurate impression in the presence of Saliva/GCF
High tear strength of AvueGum
Help to reduce the risk that the impression material tears off upon mouth removal. Another essential aspect for clinical success: The impression material has to withstand all the forces it is exposed to upon removal from the mouth. AvueGum impressions are rigid enough to withstand all the compression forces
Impressions of AvueGum are Dimensionally stable
Distortions can be the reason for poorly fitting resorations. They usually are not known until the final restoration is ready for seating.AvueGum is dimensionally stable showing a minimum amount of shrinkage
AvueGum Light body/Medium body shows thixotropic characteristics
Rheological characteristics making single step/putty wash impression more accurate. As AvueGum material shows shear thinning while applying pressure making it stable at first and flowable under pressure which is very important for a medium body
The impression is stable and can be cast even after one monthAvueGum impression can be poured multiple times without jeopardising the accuracy accuracy of impression material
AvueGum Putty has high filler loading.
It is often combined with a AvueGum Light body during the impression procedure, known as the putty-wash technique, and is commonly used for dental impressions.
Impression techniques for Putty/Lightbody
Two techniques—one-stage or two-stage procedures—can be used when taking impressions with AvueGum light body and putty. For one-stage procedures, the wash material is syringed on the prepared tooth, and then the unset putty is seated over the light body material. AvueGum Putty is very soft making it possible to capture margins in wash material as it is not pushed by its very heavy body consistency
For two-stage procedures, the initial putty impression is made and allowed to set, and then it is subsequently relined with wash materials,As per certain studies, two step impressions are better as all the details are captured in light body
Features of AvueGum Putty/Light body
- A firmly fixed material to allow tray support, yet flexible enough for easy removal.
- Easily mixed to Homogenous & Bubble free consistency Optimized flow guarantees precise detail reproduction in every clinical condition.
- Stays where you want and flows on your demand.
- Thixotrophic – non slumpy. Stable as well as flowable.
- Excellent recovery after deformation from undercuts.
- Can be poured long after taking impression without loss of accuracy.
- High tear resistance
The light body has the lowest viscosity and is placed on hard and soft tissues to record accurate surface details of tooth preparations even in presence of moisture because of its Superior Hydrophilicity.

Putty Technical Details:
Catridge Using Dispensor (1:1):
1. Slide up the lever present on the back side of the dispenser & simultaneously pullback the plunger.
2. Lift up the plastic flap (Cartridge Lock) present on the front side.
3. Now load the cartridge, ensuring that V-shaped notch of the cartridge is facing downwards.
4. Push down the plastic flap and lock the cartridge.
5. Remove the cartridge cap by rotating it 90 degree anticlockwise and discard it.
6. Attach mixing tip and turn it clockwise to lock it.
7. Before applying the tip, check that the two cartridge openings are not clogged, and bleed the cartridge until the base and catalyst paste are evenly extruded.
8. By pulling the trigger, material is mixed. While using it for the first time squeeze out a pea sized amount of material and discard it.
9. To avoid bubbles, it is important that the tip of mixing cannula always remains immersed in the material. 10. After application leave the used mixing tip on the cartridge to cap the unused material.
Cartridge Using Automatic Mixers:
1. Remove the cap from the cartridge and discard. Attach a new mixing tip.
2. Secure the mixing tip by sliding the locking mechanism into the locked position.
3. Insert the cartridge into the Automatic impression mixer. Note: Follow the instructions of the mixing machine you are using.
4. While using the cartridge first time extrude and discard pea size of material. Note: To avoid bubbles always immersed the mixing tip into the tray material.
5. After the application, leave the used tip on the cartridge to cap unused material.
1. Take the base material and the catalyst in equal ratio using the specific colored spoon.
2. Knead the material with the fingertips for not more than 60 seconds until the color is uniform.
3. Reseal the container immediately after use. NOTE: Only use the Base and Catalyst from the same package! Reseal the container immediately after use! Do not mix up the container lids!
Storage and Shelf life
1. Store impression at room temperature (7-25 °C) in a dry place away from light.
2. The impression is stable and can be cast even after one month without loss of accuracy.
3. Close the jar of putty immediately after use.
4. After the application, leave the used tip on the cartridge to cap the unused material.
5. Do not use the material after the expiry date, which is displayed on the containers.
