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, which 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, which is extremely important should your dentures come back for additions in the future.’
For optimum results, Kemdent recommend 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, the ideal consistency for use as a reline material because it can be poured easily for optimum control with no slump.
Once mixed Simplex Rapid contains a very low residual monomer level, giving 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.
SIMPLEX RAPID IS for use by dental professionals only.
