EXPANSION LIQUIDS MIXING SOLUTIONS FOR PHOSPHATE-BONDED INVESTMENTS
Expansion liquid is used to achieve a desired amount of setting expansion when mixed with phosphate-bonded investments. Setting expansion can be adjusted by diluting expansion liquid with distilled or demineralized water, without changing the liquid/powder ratio. The higher the concentration of expansion liquid, the greater the expansion of the investment material. High-expansion liquid allows for even greater setting expansion, making it the ideal choice for non-precious dental alloys or conditions resulting in consistently tight fits. Refer to the investment's instructions for specifications on proper liquid/powder ratios and dilution recommendations.
