Impregum dental impression material comes in a variety of preparation speeds and consistencies for different procedural needs. It has been Kent Express’ best-selling polyether material for several years.

What is polyether impression material?


Polyether impression material is a synthetic elastomer (a polymer-based impression material which chemically cross-link when setting). It comes as a base and activity paste system.

Polyether is used in a single-stage impression technique where the material syringed around the preparation is the same as that used in the impression tray.
