Dispenser Warms Composite in 30 Seconds

Richard Gawel


The VisCalor Dispenser composite capsule application device warms VOCO’s 2-in-1 thermo-viscous VisCalor composites in 30 seconds while maximizing working time to as much as 2 minutes, 30 seconds, according to the company.

The warmer also uses near-infrared technology in tandem with VOCO’s unit dose, easy access capsules, the company said, which are made from a special plastic that improves the heat transfer and allows for the rapid warming of VisCalor’s TVT polymers.

While heat energy is absorbed by the composite, the device does not become hot, nor does the composite become too warm to damage the pulp, according to VOCO. This was confirmed by a third-party university study, the company said.

Additionally, the VisCalor Dispenser has a removeable, autoclavable sheath for infection control and is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery that can be charged via a mini USB cable.
