Field of use: UZF Plus
(see brochure thermoforming technique and material card) UZF-Plus can be applied by one or two layers as spacer/insulating foil on each Erkodent foil. Also UZF can be added (then only one layer) to already ex works applied spacer/insulating foils for additional shrinkage compensation. Two functions - As a spacer: The shrinkage of the thermoforming material is compensated. Splints fabricated in this way fit better and sits on the dental arch with less tension. As an insulating foil: Areas silicones, wax and other materials on the plaster model remain reliably separated from the inner side of the foil. This saves tedious cleaning. The inside of the foil will be left hygienically smooth.
Transparent, 0,1 mm thick foil with white logo. Will always be applied towards the model and is heated together with the chosen foil. The heating times and rated temperatures of the basic foils do not change, aside from Erkoflex. For Erkoflex please see the indications of: Erkoflex + Universal-UZF or Erkoflex + UZF-Plus.
Plastification: (for machines without heating time control) Soft foils: Foil slightly sags and tenses again, then thermoform. Hard foils: Check softness with an instrument. If permanent impressions result, thermoform.
Field of use: UZF Cast
(see brochure Thermoforming technique and material card) As shrink-compensating spacer foil for production of moulded pieces.
Does not bond to Erkolen and Erkodur-C casting foils. Recommendation: Clear UZF-Cast for Erkodur-C and Erkolen-A, red and brown for Erkolen.
(for machines without heating time control) UZF-Cast is between model and casting foil. UZF-Cast is perforated (app. 3 - 5 perforations) to prevent air pockets. Plastify both foils together. Press as soon as perforations deform.
