Arti-Fol 12 micron metallic is a high-tech test film with distinctly improved features. This test film is made of metallic polyester film (Shimstock-film) only 12 microns thick. The combination of a colour coating anda metallic film offers certain advantages in some applications.
– This film possesses excellent colour transfer
– High spots can easily be detected, especially on ceramic or highly polished metal surfaces
– The film is antistatic and can easily be applied even without using forceps
– Extremely tear-resistant and ideal for resilience testing
In contrast to the conventional Shimstock film, Arti-Fol metallic marks the respective high spot precisely. Since the back of the film is metallic it is obvious which side is colour coated and which is not. It is therefore ideal for checking approximal contact points when fixing dental bridges and crowns.
