Gloss from a can


Schaan, Liechtenstein - 19 June 2008

Time is Money – this is particularly true for the fabrication of ceramic restorations. For that reason, Ivoclar Vivadent launches a glaze spray which is quick to handle and also excellently suitable to glaze IPS Empress restorations.

The ready-for-use glaze spray is quickly and easily sprayed onto fully anatomical, characterized IPS Empress restorations or IPS Empress restorations veneered with IPS Empress Esthetic Veneer and subsequently fired using the well-known glaze firing parameters. The composition of the glaze material corresponds to that of the glaze paste - only the form of application is new.
The constant consistency is another advantage. The spray can be applied on leucite glass-ceramics in very thin layers. Hence the surface structure is maintained and an even gloss is created.

The IPS Empress Universal Glaze Spray is available from June 2008.

For the components of the IPS e.max ceramic system (e.g. lithium disilicate), the IPS e.max Ceram Glaze Spray has been developed.
