Diamond are disks of natural felt used to hold pastes and abrasives for polishing surfaces, available in 8 and/or 12 mm sizes.
Characteristics and Advantages
• Can be used on amalgam, resin, metal, glass ionomer etc.
• Quick fit that facilitates its coupling to the mandrel.
• No metal parts on the disk surface, reducing risk of damage to restorations.
• Flexibility that enables polishing on irregular and angled surfaces.
• Indicated for polishing restorative materials with the aid of Diamond polishing pastes.
Step by Step
Attach the felt disk over the mandrel, fitting it using the cavity in the silicone holder.
Fit the set (mandrel and felt disk) on the contra-angle handpiece and apply a small amount of polishing paste on the upper surface of the disk or directly on the surface to be polished.
Start the procedure by using low rotation, low pressure and intermittent movements over the surface to be worked. This way you prevent excessive heating of the surface.
Note: When using pastes with different grits reserve exclusive disks for each paste. Using the same disk will result in failure in the last finishing because the result of the paste with the most course grain will prevail.
Information for the Professional
• Single-use product (disks). Discard after use.
• Use at low rotation and without putting pressure on the disk during polishing.
• Make sure the disk is well attached to the mandrel before triggering rotation. Excessively high rotations can result in the disk being thrown from the mandrel and overheating of the region being polished.
• Always keep the product in its original packaging, properly closed.
• The validity period of Diamond is 3 years from the date of manufacture.
• Do not use the product after its expiration date.
