EdgeTaper Platinum features heat-treated Firewire NiTi and tests at twice the cyclic fatigue as ProTaper Gold and 6 times the cyclic fatigue as ProTaper. Experience the new standard in file safety and canal centering ability.
For all EdgeTaper Platnum Heat-Treated and EdgeTaper (Non-heat Treated) Files use your current or similar speeds, torques, and techniques as you are using with ProTaper and ProTaper Gold.
- The Taper Has Been Edge-file
Unmatched Flexibility: Heat-treated FireWire NiTi gives amazing flexibility, capable of 90° curves.
No Bounce Back: FireWire NiTi doesn’t bounce back to preserve apical anatomy
Incredible Strength: Twice the cyclic fatigue as Protaper Gold and six times that of ProTaper.
The Amazing Strength of EdgeTaper: Cyclic Fatigue Testing – Average Time to Failure in Seconds
Cyclical fatigue test was performed using a custom test system with each file rotated at 500 RPM while 3mm of the file tip was inserted in a test block with a 90° curvature. Time to failure (seconds) was measured for each instrument.
