The KATANA Cleaner has a high cleaning ability due in part to the surface active characteristic of its MDP-based salt. Hydrophobic groups of the salt adhere to the contamination, weakening the surface tension and causing it to break up. The contamination then floats from the tooth or restoration surface, and can be removed by rinsing with water. This allows for establishment of the desired bond strength, ensuring that you can really be prepared to cement your restoration.
Unlike other dental cleaners, the KATANA Cleaner can be used both intra-orally and extra-orally owing to its relatively low pH value of 4.5.
As is the case for many Kuraray Noritake Dental products, this cleaner is backed by extensive scientific research and is designed to be as simple to use as possible. The KATANA Cleaner comes with a single-handed delivery cap, and its application is straightforward: just apply with a rubbing motion for at least 10 seconds, rinse with water and air-dry before cementation.
The KATANA Cleaner is suitable for a wide range of dental and metal restorations. It can be used on enamel or dentine, on dental ceramics such as zirconia, on composite resins and on dental posts.
Pairing ideally with the KATANA Cleaner is PANAVIA V5, a resin cement with unrivalled simplicity and predictability. Together, these products highlight Kuraray Noritake Dental’s commitment to delivering optimal cementation.
