One-Step, Self-Retracting Impressioning System
The NoCord™ VPS Introductory Kit is a revolutionary One-Step, Self-Retracting Impressioning System designed specifically for the wash and tray technique. It consists of the Centrix NoCord™ Wash and NoCord™ MegaBody® Tray Materials which together produce highly accurate dental impressions without the need for retraction cords and pastes. NoCord Wash and NoCord MegaBody Tray Materials are addition-reaction silicone-based elastomeric materials, or vinyl polysiloxane (VPS), offering excellent physical and dimensional properties as well as providing high accuracy and stability. Without a separate retraction procedure, NoCord Wash and MegaBody Tray Materials have been specially formulated to work together as a system and should always be used together to obtain the best, final impression results.

No. If NoCord MegaBody Tray Material is used with other wash materials, it will not deliver the bleeding and fluids control of the NoCord VPS System, since only NoCord Wash Material contains its unique hemostatic and retraction paste formulation.
NoCord VPS Materials (NoCord Wash & NoCord MegaBody Tray Materials) and all VPS impression materials should not come in contact with sources of sulfur (latex gloves, ferric sulfate solutions, etc.) as setting may be affected.
Our revolutionary NoCord Wash Material retracts the gingiva, stops fluid flow and controls bleeding therefore eliminating time and costs of packing cord and applying hemostatic agents. NoCord Wash contains 15% alum to constrict capillary oozing, control bleeding and displaces gingival crevicular fluids to provide dry, bubble free margins. When NoCord Wash Material is used with our NoCord MegaBody Tray Material, it drives the wash into the sulcus and pushes the tissue. The combination of both provides a clear final impression.
NoCord VPS system is designed to take impressions without separate gingival retraction and hemostatic control steps.
You can save approximately 3 minutes per restorative procedure.
I have been using Centrix products for several years and have been consistently impressed with the quality. Recently I received a sample of the NoCord VPS Impression System and decided to give it a try. The material has worked extremely well; impressions are better, plus my crowns & bridgework need a lot less adjusting! With the impression and retraction material in one step, the savings are invaluable. I used another material for many years, but now I am very happy using NoCord VPS for my crown & bridgework. I recommend it highly!
NoCord is revolutionary! It is such a relief not to have to pack cord in most all situations. NoCord has changed the way we practice dentistry. There is less stress, less time, less hassle now, that translates into more enjoyment in the delivery of dental care!
NoCord VPS. Finally, a truly 1-step impression material. No cord. No moisture. No wasted time. Just a clean and clear margin every time!
For every impression I take, I no longer pack cord, apply a separate hemostatic agent or add a retraction paste to the already hectic schedule of a general dentist. I simply place NoCord Wash around the crown prep and gingiva, add NoCord MegaBody Tray material to my impression tray, seat the impression tray. That's it, very easy, saves time, and produces excellent results.
NoCord VPS is a trifecta for impression materials; sulcus expansion, hemostasis and accuracy. NoCord is the next generation of impression materials. There are less steps and cost because the impression material does more.
Through 30 years of clinical practice, having tried and used every impression material and gingival retraction method that's been available, I have found the NoCord VPS impression material that eliminates separate retraction and hemostasis steps, to be the easiest method of saving time when taking impressions I am able to achieve the best impressions I have been able to get in my career.
