Reinforced Zinc Oxide Eugenol Cement

Reinforced Zinc Oxide Eugenol Cement

This cement features a reinforcing polymer incorporated into the powder.

This gives the cement the strength to resist condensation forces and to ensure adequate life when used as a temporary filling. By incorporating the reinforcing agent in the powder instead of the liquid, the mixing properties are excellent. Although the cement is reinforced, it can be easily removed when used in a temporary situation.
