Ultrapak and Ultrapak E

Knitted & Epinephrine Knitted Cord

Ultrapak cord is made of 100% cotton, knitted into thousands of tiny loops to form long, interlocking chains. This unique knitted design exerts a gentle, continuous outward force following placement, as the knitted loops seek to open. Optimal tissue displacement occurs in 3–8 minutes. Ultrapak E knitted cord is impregnated with racemic epinephrine hydrochloride.

The original—and smallest—knitted cord

  • Provides rapid tissue displacement, detailed margins, and quality impressions
  • Facilitates easy packing and stays placed better than any twisted or braided cord
  • Compresses upon packing then expands for optimal retraction
  • Does not entangle in diamond bur
  • Bright colors facilitate easy location and removal
  • Available with or without epinephrine*
  • High carbon steel blade ensures a clean cut
  • Thin plastic gate prevents cord from falling into the bottle upon cutting
  • Ruler printed on label provides easy cord measurement

*Note: Do not use Ultrapak E knitted cord or other epinephrine preparations with ferric sulfate solutions, including ViscoStat, Astringedent, and Astringedent X hemostatics, as a blue/black precipitate will occur. Ultrapak cord with Epinephrine is not available in all countries.
