Important: For best results, do not open the foil pouch until immediately before use. The Zendura dental appliance sheet must be thermoformed within 15 minutes of opening the protective pouch. This open time is reduced for very humid environments. Store the Zendura sheets packaged and in a cool and dry place.
Cautions:Patients with a history of allergic reactions to plastics should refrain from using this product. Improper thermoforming of the Zendura sheets might lead to the cracking, sharp edges, loose fit or aspiration of the Zendura appliance.
Note: The heating element of each thermoformer can vary from machine to machine. The heating cycle times listed in the table are recommended based on our lab experience, but may need to be adjusted by adding or reducing up to 5-10 seconds according to the condition and performance of your specific machine.
If the material becomes flimsy and folds, it is overheated. Try reducing the heating time by 5 seconds or more if overheating issues persist.
If the material doesn’t adapt to the model well or comes off the model too easily, it is underheated. Try increasing the heating time by 5-10 sec to allow enough heating.
For example, try code 152 with Biostar if the sheet appears to be overheated, and try code 172 if the sheet appears to be underheated.
