Hydrocolor 5

Hydrocolor 5

Hydrocolor 5 is a chromatic alginate, with a pleasant berry scent, easy to use thanks to the three processing steps that clearly indicate the mixing phase (fuchsia), when the alginate is ready to be loaded on the impression tray (violet) and when it can be inserted into the patient’s mouth (light blue).

Characteristics

• High dimensional stability

• Quick working and setting times

• Thixotropy

• Pleasant scents

• Chromatic alginate which changes colour to guide the dentist during the 3 processing stages

• Can be mixed with Hurrimix² or Alghamix II

Advantages

• Long dimensional stability of impressions (5 days of dimensional stability)

• Easy mixing

• Homogeneous mass, smooth, compact surfaces

Zhermack recommends:

• Hurrimix²: centrifugal mixer for alginates and gypsum

• Alghamix II: mechanical mixer for alginates and C-Silicones
