SHARP™ Premium Vinyl Polysiloxane:
The cutting edge in premium impression materials.
An exciting breakthrough in final impression-making technology, Parkell’s SHARP Premium VPS materials are extremely hydrophilic addition-reaction silicones designed to flow easily on dry or slightly moist teeth. They readily overcome any remaining moisture in the mouth to create a precise impression, delivering exceptional replication of minute detail and virtually flawless dimensional accuracy, coupled with superior tear strength.
Each SHARP VPS material has been optimized for ideal flow. SHARP Wash material naturally reduces surface tension when syringed into difficult areas, due to its superb moisture-seeking and displacement properties. SHARP tray materials provide excellent compression to the Wash and are available in Medium and Heavy viscosities.
SHARP Wash, Medium and Heavy viscosities feature a 90-second working time, 3-minute intraoral set time, and are compatible with all types of dental stone.

SHARP™ Clear VPS: Experience the clarity of this unique material.
For those more specialized procedures, new SHARP Clear VPS is uniquely formulated to offer a variety of potential creative applications. SHARP Clear is ideal for fabricating transparent matrices on a stone model or intraorally, plus so much more. Whether using light-cure, self-cure or dual-cure composite resin materials or bisacryls, SHARP Clear not only allows curing through the material, but is so crystal clear that any voids or defects may be readily detected.
Composite materials allowed to cure inside a SHARP Clear matrix will exhibit less oxygen inhibition.
SHARP Clear features a 30-second working time and a 2-minute set.
