As a preparatory step of the VITA VM LC BASIC layering, VITA VM BOND sold separately and VITA VM LC OPAQUE are previously applied onto the framework.
Application of VITAVM®LC OPAQUE: First add liquid into the depression of a black ceramic mixing plate. Then add the powder and stir with a plastic spatula for approx. 30 sec to obtain a homogenous, thin mixture. Mixing ratio: 5 drops of liquid and 1 measuring spoon of powder (to obtain approx. 4 units). The use of a metal spatula is not recommended since it may result in colour changes.
It is recommended to wet the brush with OPAQUE LIQUID sold separately before the opaque is applied. To achieve complete polymerization, the opaque is applied in thin layers onto the framework. Polymerization is carried out after each layer. As many layers of OPAQUE are applied (at least 2) as required to ensure complete coverage of the metal. The mixed opaque must be protected against light (dark cover) between the individual polymerization steps.
