GC EUROPE Introduces the Next Generation of Flowables
GC EUROPE introduces the next generation of flowables
GC materials range now includes G-ænial Universal Flo and G-ænial Flo
Leuven, Belgium (October 2010): GC EUROPE, a leader in dental materials technology has announced the launch of two superior flowable materials, G-ænial Universal Flo and G-ænial Flo. Together these flowable materials contribute to the ever-expanding range of materials by GC that are available to dentists who want to give their patients the best aesthetic, functional and durable restorations. With flowable composites becoming a firm favourite in dental practices all across Europe, GC recognized the need for the development of materials that demonstrate the benefits of flowability and easy placement combined with the reliability of superior physical properties.
New concept, new composition
As a solution, GC developed an entirely new concept in the form of G-ænial Universal Flo and G-ænial Flo. Both flowable materials benefit from a composition that features a unique filler technology. Unlike other flowable composites they have a higher filler load and a homogeneous dispersion of fillers. The resulting improved strength and wear resistance are two key features of these flowable materials, opening up the potential for a broader use than standard flowables.
G-ænial Universal Flo
G-ænial Universal Flo is radiopaque and features high viscosity, making it more suitable for class I-V restorations. Essentially, it looks like a flowable but behaves like a restorative. Its indications are for direct restorations, minimum intervention cavities and fissure sealing.
G-ænial Universal Flo features include:
• physical performance of a regular composite
• Flows smoothly for easy placement
• Highly thixotropic behaviour, not runny and stays neatly in place and holds its shape
• Unsurpassed speed and ease with which a gloss is obtained , virtually self polishing
• superb invisible aesthetics without any compromises
G-ænial Flo demonstrates superior fluidity, along with longevity and endurance. Indications include using it as a liner or base, for tunnel preparation and for restoration of small defects.
G-ænial Flo characteristics include
• enhanced flowability, allowing perfect adaptation to the cavity walls, avoiding air entrapment
• radiopacity of about 230% Al, allowing easy x-ray follow-up.
• Well balanced physical properties that are perfectly adapted to the product’s indications.
• G-ænial Flo completes the range offering 8 shades including 2 opaque shades.
G-ænial Universal Flo is available in the following shades
15 Standard Shades: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, B1, B2, B3, C3, BW, CV
Outside shades: AE, JE
Inside shades: AO2, AO3
G-ænial Flo is available in the following shades
8 Standard Shades: A1, A2, A3, A3.5, A4, CV
Inside shades: AO2, AO3
Unique syringe design
G-ænial Universal Flo and G-ænial Flo are dispensed through an ergonomically designed syringe that enables smooth delivery of the material, with a tapered tip that means no paste can stick to it. The syringe size provides a comfortable hold and the arched shape of the flange fits the hand ergonomically. The design also prevents material waste because minimal residual paste remains in the syringe after use.
G-ænial Universal Flo is available in a 3.4g (2.0mL) syringe with 10 dispensing tips
G-ænial Flo is available in a 3.8g (2.0mL) syringe with 10 dispensing tips
