Sulzer Mixpac AG – a subsidiary of Sulzer Ltd., a global leader in the manufacture and supply of liquid application and mixing technology products and services – will showcase the new Unit Dose 0.5ml at IDS in Cologne from 21-25 March 2017. The disposable application system is designed for use with two-component dental materials such as cements or bleaching materials. “The Unit Dose 0.5ml simplifies the application of cements and saves time, which in turn improves hygiene and safety”, explains Martina Strasser, Head of Sales Dental.
Easy to use and reliable mixing results
The ergonomically designed Unit Dose 0.5ml is simple to use and has a range of safety features, such as transport protection and a safety fastener. “It is very economical as there is no unnecessary material wastage thanks to the integrated MIXPACTM T-Mixer mixing technology. This new product guarantees reliable, high-quality mixing results and prevents cross-contamination,” says Hanspeter Benz, Product Manager Dental. Clear visual indicators ensure that the user can see at a glance whether the system has been activated and is ready to use.
Another innovation for 2017: Sulzer MIXPACTM T-Mixer Colibri
An additional innovation recently launched by Mixpac is the T-Mixer™ Colibri mixing tip, which was showcased in autumn at GNYDM in New York and then at CIOSP in São Paulo. The T-Mixer Colibri featuring an integrated 180° bendable cannula that can be rotated 360° for the precise application and mixing of multi-component dental materials, has been specially designed for use in root canal work and cementation. The economical T-Mixer Colibri™ ingeniously combines two of Mixpac’s most successful products. It couples the geometry of the reliable T-Mixer™ with all the advantages of the bendable Colibri™ application cannula. The mixing tip allows for an ergonomic posture and highly professional work, even when treating areas that are difficult to reach, meaning that changes to the working environment are not necessary. Due to its short, compact design the T-Mixer Colibri also uses up to 40 percent less material compared to helix mixing tips. The result is a consistent, homogenous application – even when bent – thanks to the uniform internal diameter of the gently curved stainless steel medical cannula.
