Phosphoric Acid, NF is a also known under the name othophosphoric acid.  A mineral acid that is often used for dental cements based on the vigorous reaction which occurs between certain basic oxides and phosphoric acid to form phosphate salt of low solubility.

Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, NF is used in fillers in different dental filling materials such as glass-ionomer and zinc-based cements to improve the mechanical properties by increasing physical resistance and reduce polymerization shrinkage.

Stannous Fluoride, Oral Grade is used in zinc phosphate dental cements for the slow time release benefits of fluoride.

Zinc Oxide, USP is an inorganic compound that is a common ingredient in dental cements for its antibacterial properties and zinc oxide is on the U.S. FDA's list of generally recognized as safe, or GRAS, substances.

Zinc Polycarboxylate Dental Cement Ingredients

Itaconic acid is a naturally occuring, white crystalline powder and assists in the setting reaction along with polyacrylic acid.

M1075 | Maleic Acid

Maleic Acid is an unsaturated dicarboxylic acid.  Dental glass ionomer dental cements are obtained by using a liquid mixing component comprising an aqueous solution of a certain maleic acid-acrylic acid-copolymer.

Magnesium Oxide, Light Powder, USP is a white solid mineral that is hygroscopic.  It is used in dental cements to strengthen bonding.  Spectrum Chemical manufactured USP products are manufactured, packaged and stored under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).

Magnesium Oxide, Heavy Powder, USP  is a white solid mineral that is hygroscopic.   It is used in dental cements to strengthen bonding.  Spectrum Chemical manufactured USP products are manufactured, packaged and stored under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).

Polyacrylic Acid Sodium Salt, 45 Percent Solution is critical for the setting reaction of zinc polycarboxylate dental cements.

Tartaric Acid, NF is present in the liquid phase of zinc polycarboxylate (glass ionomer) dental cements.  Tartaric acid improves handling characteristics and increases the working time, but it shortens the setting time.

Zinc Oxide, USP is an inorganic compound that is a common ingredient in dental cements for its antibacterial properties and zinc oxide is on the U.S. FDA's list of generally recognized as safe, or GRAS, substances.

Glass Ionomer Dental Cement Ingredients

Aluminum Fluoride, Powder, Reagent is normally in the powder phase of the glass ionomer dental cement premix and acts as a ceramic flux during mixing plus provides long term anticancer benefits.

Aluminum Phosphate is an aluminum salt used as an adjuvant for the incorporation of aluminum ions in the liquid phase of dental cements for the purpose of accelaerating the setting of the dental cement.

Calcium Fluoride, Powder, Reagent is used as a source of fluoride ion.  The fluoride ion is released from the glass ionomer at the time of mixing and lies within the matrix.

Calcium Oxide (Lime) USP forms an acid soluble fluoroaluminosilicate when the powder and liquid components of glass ionomer dental cements.

Itaconic acid is a naturally occuring, white crystalline powder and assists in the setting reaction along with polyacrylic acid.

M1075 | Maleic Acid

Maleic Acid is an unsaturated dicarboxylic acid.  Dental glass ionomer dental cements are obtained by using a liquid mixing component comprising an aqueous solution of a certain maleic acid-acrylic acid-copolymer.
