Simplex Rapid for optimum results
Kemdent’s Simplex Rapid is ideal for use in repairs, relines and additions to dentures.
Kemdent’s Simplex Rapid is a self-curing and cold cured polymethylmethacrylate acrylic material with multiple applications.
It is ideal for repairs, indirect relines and additions to removable prosthetic appliances. Qualities endorsed by Nicholas O’Connor and Martyn Young of Cotswold Dental Laboratory, Cheltenham, who said: ‘We have been using Simplex Rapid for all of our repairs, indirect relines and additions for many years. We particularly like its porosity-free consistency and good bonding properties. They make it a very reliable product that consistently does the job.
‘We also like the better colour matching we can achieve with Kemdent’s denture base materials. This is extremely important should your dentures come back for additions in the future.’
For optimum results, Kemdent recommends measuring out the appropriate quantity of liquid then adding the powder.
After about 60 seconds the liquid will have absorbed the correct amount of powder for optimised handling and physical properties. The resultant mix has the consistency of thick custard. This is the ideal consistency for use as a reline material because dentists can pour easily for optimum control with no slump.
Once mixed, Simplex Rapid contains a very low residual monomer level. This gives it a high degree of mucous membrane tolerance and minimised porosity – important for aesthetics and strength.
In addition, its high compatibility to acrylic denture bases and teeth means that additions and repairs are much stronger and far less likely to fail. Once cured it is easy to finish to create an extremely highly polished finish, which is well tolerated by the patient’s tongue and soft tissues.
