The Astropol polishing system is especially designed for the finishing, polishing and high-gloss polishing of composite and ceromer materials.
Astropol is a comprehensive finishing and polishing set that embraces three grit sizes and four differently shaped polishers for interdental and occlusal applications:
- Small Flame
- Large Flame
- Smooth lustrous restorations with a precision finish
- 3 grit sizes for professional results
- Also suitable for polishing amalgam
- 4 shapes for flexible use in the anterior and posterior region
- Autoclavable and reusable
Astropol F (finish): is suited for the removal of excess material and pre-polishing applications.
Astropol P (polish): is designed for the polishing of restorations. Astropol P ensures a smooth surface finish and helps achieve first-class results particularly in conjunction with micro-filled composite materials (Heliomolar, Heliomolar Flow, Heliomolar HB).
Astropol HP (high-gloss polish): is suitable for high-end results exhibiting very smooth, highly lustrous surfaces. These polishers are particularly recommended for hybrid composites (Tetric, Tetric EvoCeram, Tetric EvoFlow, Tetric Ceram HB).
INDICATION: Astropol is indicated for the finishing and polishing of restorations made of composite material and amalgam.
