SternTek® Base Plate Material

1. Why does the tray material lift off of the model during the curing process?
There is always some shrinkage of this type of material as it cures and polymerizes. This can be visibly seen by the lifting of the tray off of the model, especially in the palate region where there is a bulk of tray material. Intimately adapting the tray material to the model and avoiding excessive bulk of material in the palatal region by evenly placing the material can minimize this. Shrinkage does not depend on the curing light intensity but mainly on the filler percentage and the resins used.

2. What is the shelf life of the material?
The shelf life is 3 years from date of manufacturer.
3 year shelf life
Good malleability, easy to adapt, easy to trim
Odorless
Economical to use in prefabricated sheets; Extra material is reusable
Strong, not brittle
No extra support is needed for the handle
Disinfection with standard disinfecting solution has no effect on the stability of the tray
Stable, not easily deformed
Uniform thickness
Sufficient working time & quick curing time with UV or halogen light
