Kettenbach LP is located in Huntington Beach, Calif., and it is the exclusive U.S. distributor for Kettenbach GmbH & Co. KG, located in Eschenburg, Germany. Founded by August Kettenbach in 1944, Kettenbach GmbH was created for the development and marketing of medical and dental products.

Today, the company is known as one of the leading international producers of impression materials for dental use and is also known in other surgical areas of medicine. The company recently announced a number of product enhancements and improvements.

New 50 ml cartridge system

Late last year Kettenbach Dental presented its new and unmistakable look to the dental world, showcasing all its products with fresh and modern packaging. With the conversion to a new 50 ml cartridge system, there is now another highlight. The quality of the products remains unchanged but the impression process is now even more economical and safer.

The traditional 50 ml cartridge has long been established in the dental sector for applying impression material and is the modern standard in almost every dental practice. However, this does not mean that its design cannot be further improved. With this in mind, starting today (April 16, 2021), Kettenbach Dental will convert all impression materials dispensed from the 50 ml cartridge to an innovative and even more efficient system as part of its product optimization.

For users of the 50 ml cartridge materials in the Futar (bite registration), Panasil and Identium (precision impression) as well as Silginat (anatomic impression) product families, this means that taking impressions will become even more cost effective and safer with the same high product quality because nothing will change with the material itself.

Economic impression taking made easy

High-viscosity and medium-viscosity impression materials will be applied using a blue mixing tip (previously green). Low viscosity materials will be applied with a red mixing tip (previously yellow). Thanks to the new mixing system and its corresponding short blue mixing tips, up to 20 percent less residue remains in the mixing tip compared to the previous application: this means more impressions per cartridge and therefore greater cost effectiveness.

Despite the shorter mixing tip, the required clinical length and comfortable working are assured, according to Kettenbach Dental. “Bleeding” the cartridge impression material before application is no longer necessary, thus enabling direct application after attaching the mixing tip. The result is less waste, more product.

Intuitive handling — simply intelligent

Even without special training, intuitive and safe use of the new cartridge system is guaranteed at all times. Thanks to the integrated positioning aid, attaching the mixing tip to the cartridge is noticeably easier. The color coding system is already familiar to practitioners and helps to have the right components quickly at hand even in hectic moments.

As usual, all impression materials in the new application system can be used with all conventional dispensing guns and continue to support simplicity of chairside application. The tamper-evident closure ensures an intact original product from Kettenbach Dental.

Kettenbach Dental impression products are still “100 percent made in Germany” and unchanged, retaining their unique and high-quality contents. Combined with the future system-related advantages, this is as usual — simply intelligent.
