Study Validates Ultrasonic Cleaner Efficiency for Rubber Impressions

Rubber Molds or Impressions Retain Dimensional Accuracy with Ultrasonic Cleaners

Rubber Molds or Impressions Retain Dimensional Accuracy with Ultrasonic Cleaners

In this study published at Sage Journals, they examine the effect of ultrasonic cleaning on polysulphide rubber impressions and measure the dimensional change in the impression.  This is an important test as any change in the dimensions can have a negative impact on the produced cast.  The final result of the study validated the use of ultrasonic cleaners.  Clinicians were unable to differentiate between casts created from rubber impressions cleaned with ultrasonic cleaners or those cleaned by other methods.  Not only that, the measured distortion in dimensions due to ultrasonic cleaning were no different from other cleaning methods. A related post discusses ultrasonic cleaning of molds.
