ABRASIVES, POLISHERS AND POLISHING PASTES
Whether ceramic abrasives or polishers: SHOFU’s rotary instruments are available in various head sizes and different attachment and shank types – depending on handpiece design, indication and therapy. SHOFU offers a wide range of rotary instruments, not only for dentists, but also for laboratories. The instruments should be used exclusively for their respective indications. It is important to insert them completely into the straight, contra-angle or turbine handpiece, taking care to avoid any jamming. The instruments should also be regularly inspected for any signs of wear.
All shanks are made of stainless steel.
Rotary instruments come in three shank types: HP Shank The smooth HP shank is attached to a straight dental handpiece (HP) by means of a chucking device. The standardised diameter of the HP shank is 2.35 mm. CA Shank The CA shank, 2.35 mm in diameter, fits positively in a contra-angle (CA) handpiece and is manually locked in place with the aid of a groove at the end of the shank. FG Shank The standardised diameter of the smooth FG (friction grip) shank is 1.6 mm; it is used in a highspeed turbine handpiece.
The HP mandrel is suitable for all unmounted wheels and disks (displayed here: SoftCut PB, Greenie and Brownie unmounted wheels). It reliably holds them and is easy to handle. It is advisable to always perform a test run before use and check the instruments for safety and smooth operation.
FG Friction Grip
The optimised design of the mandrels for Super-Snap, SuperSnap Buff and Super-Snap SuperBuff ensures that these flexible disks are securely attached. SHOFU developed a special CA mandrel (with white banded shank) for all OneGloss polishers; in the example image with mounted Midipoint).
The most commonly used HP shapes of the Dura-Green ceramic-bonded stones are also available in economical laboratory packs of 72 pieces, in addition to the standard packs of 12 pieces (above: Dura-Green WH6 and IC5).
Recommended Speed Range The recommended speed range for best results varies depending on the shank type and head shape and size. The speed used must not exceed or fall below this range.
Maximum Permissible Speed The maximum permissible speed must not be exceeded! This would result in a substantial loss of materi
