Zhermack – Hydrogum 5


Hydrogum 5 is a high-performance scannable alginate with 5 μm detail reproduction and 5 days of dimensional stability.

Hydrogum 5 is the Zhermack solution for satisfying the needs of the most demanding practitioners.
Its high precision in detail reproduction, which is similar to that of a silicone, helps to obtain accurate impressions. In addition, its high dimensional stability guarantees impression accuracy for up to 120 hours.

This affords dentists the peace of mind to take an impression on a Friday and to send it to the dental laboratory even the following Tuesday, without worrying about this having a detrimental effect on the result.

As it is scannable, Hydrogum 5 facilitates access to digital workflows and improves communications with the dental laboratory, which can directly obtain a digital model (without having to perform the casting phase).
