Nonstick Matrix Bands Prevent Composite Sticking

Modern bonding agents can do more than bond composite to tooth structure. They can also stick to the matrix band, often making them very difficult to remove. Slick Bands™ from Garrison Dental Solutions prevents this by applying a micro-thin coating to their popular stainless steel matrix bands. Testing of more than 20 leading bonding agents shows a 92% average reduction in composite sticking to the matrix band. Developed as an improvement to the popular Composi-Tight 3D XR Sectional Matrix System, Slick Bands™ are also available in a Tofflemire version in .0014" dead soft and regular hardnesses.
The non-stick coating on Slick Bands makes the easier to insert interproximally on conservative preps and at .0015" thick still ensures a tight contact. High contrast colors help to visualize preparation margins, and color coding makes identification and ordering easy.
Garrison Dental Solutions manufactures the Composi-Tight® Sectional Matrix System, Wedge Wands®, and a selection of other specialty dental products.
