the bottom of each container.

impressions however, special attention is necessary as such impression have limited
dimensional stability (maximum 3 hours)

water to 1 liter. The bottle of Cavex ImpreSafe is specially designed for easy measuring 30
ml of Cavex ImpreSafe. Avoid return of the liquid in the reservoir while dosing.

dirty conditions. Even under severe dirty conditions the effectiveness of Cavex ImpreSafe

Is Cavex ImpreSafe effective against tuberculosis?
The wall of Mycobacteria, such as of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is composed of
polysaccharides. It thus resembles the materials used in dental impressions, such as
alginates. The disinfectants that are efficient in destroying the mycobacteria are therefore
also “efficient in” damaging the stability of the impressions. Case and example are the
alcohol-based disinfectants. The formulation of CAVEX ImpreSafe needs > 60 minutes to
obtain the required Log 4 reduction. Therefore, we consider Cavex ImpreSafe not effective against tuberculosis
Is Cavex ImpreSafe effective against COVID-19
For testing the virucidal activity of Cavex ImpreSafe against the Corona virus, the “Feline Corona” virus was used. A surrogate virus, due to the high biological risk of the Beta Corona viruses. Testing was performed by Viroxy Labs in Malaysia, a laboratory specialized in microbiology and ISO17025 accredited. For this test a quantitative suspension test was used according to EN14476:2013+A1:2015 under both clean and dirty conditions. The tests confirmed the effectiveness of Cavex ImpreSafe against the Feline Coronavirus because the results exceeded a log 4 (99,99%) reduction
