Materials matter: The benefits of our VPS chemistry

All VPS is hydrophobic on its own.
3M™ Imprint™ 4 VPS Impression Material uses a unique and synergistic system that combines proven surfactant with a novel wetting enabler to achieve hydrophilicity.

  • 3M Imprint 4 VPS material high accuracy for complex and large cases
    Control - Enough working time

    Due to the unique chemistry, the setting time doesn't start until the end of the working time. That means you'll have enough time to load and seat the tray, whether you use a 1-step or 2-step impressioning technique.

  • 3M Imprint 4 VPS material with long working time
    Speed - Less chair time

    Less stress for patients! The shortest intra-oral setting time of 1:15 min among leading VPS fast-setting impression materials due to active self-warming technology. This speeds up the setting reaction which means shorter chair time.

  • 3M Imprint 4 VPS material moisture tolerance
    Hydrophilicity for accurate detail

    Imprint 4 material is hydrophilic and displaces moisture right from the start in the unset state. This allows the material to reproduce accurate details even in a moist environment—giving you ultimate precision and confidence.
