PermaFlo flowable composite is light-cured, radiopaque, methacrylate-based, and available in eight shades. Its thixotropic properties impart ideal flowability for improved adaptation. PermaFlo composite is 68% filled by weight, with an average particle size of 0.7μm and a low film thickness.
- High-fill, high-flow formula
- Highly radiopaque
- Fluoride-releasing formulation
- Eight shades
- Superior polishability
- Strong and wear resistant
Indications for Use
Use PermaFlo flowable composite for anterior and posterior restorations: Class I, II, III, IV, and V. It can also be used to restore missing subgingival tooth structure prior to endodontic procedures (the “Donut Technique”). It is highly recommended for Class III and V restorations, or for the lower layers when using incremental building of composites.
Masking dark colors initially facilitates gorgeous esthetics at the surface.
Place a thin layer of PermaFlo flowable composite Dentin Opaquer over the exposed metal and light cure for 10 seconds with VALO™ curing light. For curing lights with output <600 mW/cm2, cure 20 seconds.
Superadaptive Initial Layer
After the bonding agent, apply a thin layer of PermaFlo flowable composite at the gingival margin, proximal box axial margins, and internal line angles to ensure quality adaptation of composite.
Thickness and Strength
High-Fill, High-Flow Formula
PermaFlo flowable composite’s high fill and high flow give you the best of both worlds. It’s 68% filled for high strength. But it’s also highly flowable, making it ideal for metal masking, micro restorations, or as a super-adaptive initial layer beneath composite restorations. Its all-out flow makes it easy to place during restorations, while its maximum fill ensures it stays extra strong.
PermaFlo flowable composite shades offer superior polishability, and afford excellent translucency for matching, blending, and depth of cure.
“The Donut Technique”
Use PermaFlo flowable composite for the “Donut Technique” to achieve extension of root when retention of clamp would otherwise be difficult or impossible.
The flowable composite is highly radiopaque, so you’ll never have to wonder if what you’re seeing is dental material and not tooth structure or caries.
PermaFlo flowable composite is gluten free, so it fits in with the lifestyles of patients from any background.
