      As the world market leader for impression materials 3M ESPE is renowned for its innovative solutions. Since the introduction of the first impression material more than 40 years ago, 3M ESPE has continuously improved and enlarged its product portfolio: Polyether and VPS impression materials meet virtually all customer needs and preferences, ranging from different impression techniques and indications to delivery choices.


      The next VPS Generation Sets the Stage for High Accuracy

      Based on an advanced VPS formula, Express™ XT VPS Impression Materials, the next generation of VPS from 3M ESPE, sets the stage for uncompromising impression accuracy and a great fit of indirect restorations. In a variety of viscosities – from putty to ultra-light body – Express XT VPS Impression Materials offer essential benefits for the 1-step and 2-step technique. All Express XT tray materials are mixed automatically in the Pentamix™ 2 Mixing Unit. Express XT wash materials are very hydrophilic and show great flow properties. The new products have a high elongation potential and excellent tensile strength to minimize the risk of tearing and distortions upon removal. Beyond that, they recover nearly 100 % from deformations>


      Focus on Clinically Important Characteristics

      The development of Express XT VPS Impression Materials was based on a close look at all the clinically relevant properties an impression materials needs to generate reliable accuracy, also in challenging clinical situations.

  • Outstanding Balance of Clinically Relevant Properties
    • High Performance from Syringing to Model Fabrication

      The overall goal of an impression is to create an exact copy of the intraoral situation especially the detailed reproduction of the preparation margins — a prerequisite for excellent fitting restorations. To capture the margin, an impression material needs to have first-class properties in the unset stage especially hydrophilicity and flowability. To avoid any kind of permanent deformation when the impression is removed from the mouth, an impression material needs superior properties in the set stage. The new Express™ XT VPS Impression Materials meet these requirements — even under challenging clinical conditions — the first time.

      The Outstanding Balance of Clinical Relevant Properties

      Express™ XT VPS Impression Materials show great performance where it counts. It's clinically relevant characteristics are extraordinarily well balanced. The winning combination of important benefits is summarized in a star chart: tensile strength, elongation potential, toughness, recovery from elongation and hydrophilicity. Express XT offers an excellent potential for highly accurate impressions and better fitting restorations — a benefit for dentist, patient and dental technician.


      Very Positive Feedback from Dental Practioners

      In a clinical test of the new Express XT products dentists were very satisfied with the Express XT Impression Materials and judged them to be very good across a wide variety of material characteristics.

    • Captures Tooth and Preparation Margin in Detail
      Enhanced Hydrophilicity and Great Flow Properties

      To capture all relevant aspects of the prepared teeth and their margins, very good hydrophilicity and flowability of the impression material are essential. The enhanced hydrophilicity of Express XT VPS Impression Materials contributes to very good detail reproduction even in moist environments. In comparative contact angle measurement tests Express XT wash materials exhibited an outstanding hydrophilicity compared to all the other VPS materials tested.

      Additionally Express XT wash materials shows outstanding flow properties to ensure optimal coverage of the preparation surface areas.

  • Distortion-Free Removal from Mouth
    • Toughness: The Potential to Resist Tearing!
      • To avoid tearing while the set impression is removed from the mouth, an impression material does not only need to have high tensile strength but also a high elongation potential that allows the material to stretch. 
      • The combination of these two parameters is described as toughness. Toughness can be easily explained by comparison with a bunjee jumper who has to rely on his rope. The rope needs to elongate but must not tear. 
      • In comparison with different VPS wash materials, Express™ XT Light Body Standard VPS Impression Material displays high values for toughness, as this figure shows. Clinically this means that Express XT impressions are less likely to tear upon removal from the mouth than other leading VPS impression materials.

      A distortion-free impression also requires an impression material with high recovery from deformation upon mouth removal.


      Regaining the Original Shape in Every Dimension

      Precision impression materials all fulfill the minimum requirement for recovery from compression of 96,5 % (ISO test). Typically the materials show values of > 99 % in this test, meaning a permanent deformation of 1% or even less. But how about their recovery from elongation? High recovery from elongation is especially important in clinical situations with a deep sulcus, undercuts and interproximal spaces.

      The results of a 3M ESPE internal comparative study on the recovery from elongation after 150 % stretching demonstrate the superb performance of an Express XT VPS Impression Material — it recovers nearly 100 %. Impression materials with considerably lower recovery after elongation like Aquasil™ Ultra LV, may experience a permanent deformation, potentially leading to a poor fit of restorations.
