It is ok to apply zetch after dipping and it won’t affect color or translucency. It etches well enough the surface. You can apply it with either brushing or spraying technique. Hope this helps. Feel free to ask me if you have more questions. Thanks~~~It looks interesting.
What if you're dipping your zirconia, do you apply this after?
Does it etch the surface well enough so that you can now reliably bond veneers?
What is difference regarding the differing can colors?
Thanks for any follow up information you can provide
Hi Chad, thanks for interested in this product.I’m extremely interested in this product as a DDS/CDT that does most of my zirconia work in-office. It seems the spraying technique would lead to it getting on the external surface of the restoration. Is this not a problem? If not, why not?
Any reduction in the strength of the material?
Roughly how deep of an etch can be achieved?
If this product produces an etch pattern similar to HF acid on glass without compromising esthetics or strength, then you may have finally found the last piece to the puzzle that puts zirconia over eMax, which I have been predicting for 3 years. I have no trouble with zirconia crowns coming off but many teepee prep dentists do. This could be their crutch as well as make truly bonded zirconia veneers a possibility.
Any Research yet?...also, any of our Members use this...thoughts?
No Thank You! I want to avoid another highly hazardous material in the laboratory. I want to get rid of 4.5% HF, let alone bring in another HF product of higher concentration mixed with Sulfuric Acid and Hydrogen Chloride.What about a comparisation to Zircos E ? Z-etch looks easier.. >
