- How many applications can be done out of each system?
For the RelyX™ Luting Cement powder/liquid system it is recommended to use three scoops to three drops of liquid for a single crown. Based on these ratios, approximately 80 single units can be seated out of one set of powder and liquid. For the RelyX™ Luting Plus Cement paste/paste system it is recommended to dispense two "clicks" of material out of the Clicker™ Dispenser for a single crown. Based on this amount, approximately 40 single units can be seated out of one Clicker dispenser. There are 80 total clicks of material out of a single Clicker dispenser. The back of the plunger has a scale that shows how many clicks are remaining in the Clicker dispenser.
- What is the shelf life for the cements?
RelyX Luting cement powder/liquid system: This product is designed to be stored and used at room temperature. Shelf life at room temperature is 24 months. Ambient temperatures routinely higher than 27°C/80°F, or lower than 10°C/50°F may reduce shelf life. See outer package for expiration date. During use it is very important to make sure that powder vial is completely sealed after use to avoid moisture contamination of the powder, which can eventually cause slow setting.
RelyX Luting Plus cement paste/paste system: This product is designed to be used at room temperature. If stored in cooler, allow product to reach room temperature prior to use. Shelf life at room temperature is 24 months. Ambient temperatures routinely higher than 27°C/80°F may reduce shelf life. See outer package for expiration date. It is important to make sure the Clicker dispenser cap is securely latched after use to avoid water loss and drying out of the pastes.
