he Technovit 2200 series represents another product line of light-curing materials for quality assurance measures/material testing. These products can be used to professionally solve special “problem cases” in materialography that used to take a lot of time.
Due to the material properties, the area of application of the products extends to:
• Filling of micro-cracks and bores
• Fixing of the smallest (electronic) components
• Sheathing of small parts
• Creation of contrast when working with Technovit 2000 LC
• Stabilization of corrosionlayers
• Protection for paints and plastics that change during embedding
The application of the ready-to-use masses is very uncomplicated. The appropriate Technovit product is applied in a thin layer to the sample cleaned with ethanol using a brush, spatula or directly from the syringe. If the viscosity of the products is too high, it can be reduced by heating (hot plate, hair dryer).
The following individual components are available within the product line:
low-viscosity transparent liquid (bottle)
medium- viscous transparent paste (syringe)
medium- viscosity paste, dyed blue (can)
The products can be cured either with the Pekalux device (approx. 40 s) or in the Technotray CU (approx. 5 min). If thicker layers (greater than 4mm) are required, work must be carried out in several layers. For this, the smear layer that has formed on the polymerized surface of the first layer is required as a “connection”. Each layer must be hardened individually. All products can be combined with Technovit 2000 LC or 2-component Technoviten. Further processing can be done mechanically as usual by grinding and polishing done.
Handy light curing device with easy handling and good polymerisation properties. Polymerization takes place using harmless blue light. The polymerisation time is set in the Pekalux handpiece. The light device switches off automatically after the set time has elapsed.
