Kromopan 100 (abridged)

Kromopan USA, Inc


Kromopan 100 is a stable alginate hydrocolloid with a chromatic phase indicator. The initial purple color indicates spatulation time; the pink color is tray loading time, followed by seating. The manufacturer claims that impressions can be stored for an indefinite period (100 hours) before pouring. Nineteen consultants used Kromopan 100 in more than 400 impressions. This product received a 95% clinical rating.

Editors’ Note: The original evaluation was published in THE DENTAL ADVISOR Plus, Vol. 6, No. 1, January/February 1996.
