The first wash material to incorporate a hemostatic agent to control bleeding and fluid flows
NoCord Wash Material is part of the NoCord VPS Trial Kit and One Step Self-Retracting, Impressioning System. NoCord Wash Material is the first wash material to incorporate a hemostatic agent to control bleeding and fluid flows. It is a low viscosity, light body VPS material that retracts the gingiva and stops fluid flow when the compressive action of the high viscosity, NoCord MegaBody Tray Material is applied.
NoCord Wash also includes 15% alum (ammonium aluminum sulfate) as an astringent agent to control bleeding as a further measure to keep the site dry and to save steps and time. Having exposed the sub-gingival margin, NoCord Wash then cures with MegaBody Tray Material to provide a high detail, low shrinkage, clear, final impression.
Kit (available in 2 or 10-pack) includes:
NoCord Wash Material 2-PackRef# 310282
NoCord Wash Material 10-PackRef# 310284
You can save approximately 3 minutes per restorative procedure.
NoCord VPS is a unique impressioning system that makes impression taking easier, more predictable and assured. It’s designed to take impressions without separate gingival retraction and hemostatic control steps.
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.
There’s no need to learn a new procedure, simply use your traditional wash and tray technique.
No. NoCord Wash and NoCord MegaBody Tray Material have been specially formulated to work together as a system and should always be used together. If used separately, one will not get the unique benefits of the NoCord VPS system.
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.
NoCord VPS system can be used for temporary or permanent crowns or bridges, implants, veneers, aligners, denture cases and anywhere you would use VPS impression materials.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
