Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it! VOCO is excited to introduce VisCalor bulk, the world’s first thermo-viscous bulk-fill composite that offers an entirely new 2-in-1 technology. Once warmed, VisCalor bulk delivers the viscosity of a flowable, then rapidly cools to body temperature once placed—allowing for the immediate sculptability of a packable.
With an 83% fill rate by weight and a 4 mm depth of cure, VisCalor bulk saves time by eliminating procedural steps and the need for additional materials used as a restorative base, liner or occlusal capping layer, effectively making VisCalor bulk two restoratives in one.
Previously, clinicians have used heat to soften the consistency of a composite, but they were not able to totally transform its viscosity to the consistency of a flowable. VOCO’s Thermo-viscous Technology (TVT) changes this. VisCalor bulk’s unique formulation is based on an entirely new monomer system and special silane coating of its glass fillers. This combined modification, along with a new capsule design that is optimized for heat transfer, results in a unique, yet intentional behavior of the restorative when warmed. Truly a unique innovation, VisCalor bulk offers speed and simplicity to streamline your restorative dentistry.
VisCalor bulk’s high fill rate (83%), low shrinkage of 1.44% and excellent wear rate ensure the longevity and structural stability of the restoration. Its long and narrow capsule tip provides greater access to difficult-to-reach areas to ensure a bubble-free application, minimizing the potential for incipient decay and long-term failures. For enhanced esthetics, VisCalor bulk has exceptionally low water absorption and is available in four shades: Universal, A1, A2 and A3. The versatile Universal shade requires only a 10-second light cure,
Warm it, Flow it, Sculpt it – simplify your restorative procedures with VOCO’s VisCalor bulk, an efficient, 2-in-1 restorative that eliminates the need for a separate base or liner, multiple increments and/or an occlusal layer, while delivering a very high-quality, long-term restorative solution.
