Bausch 40 micron micro-thin articulating papers are extremely thin and tear resistant and are coated with liquid colours on both sides. These papers mark precisely because of the thin material; false or smear contacts can thus be avoided. The special coating with liquid colours facilitates accurate marking of all occlusal contacts or occlusal interferences. Moist occlusal surfaces such as gold,
ceramic, polished metal or acrylic, which are difficult to examine, do not pose any problem.
The special colour coating with liquid colours consists of many colour-filled microcapsules. Even the slightest masticatory pressure can cause the capsules to burst and thus release the distinctly visible colour. Also repeated marking is possible because of colour regeneration.
Bausch micro-thin Articulating Papers are especially suitable for the two-tone representation of static and dynamic occlusion. The first step is to inspect the concentric contacts (static occlusion) in red, and the second step to inspect the eccentric contacts (dynamic occlusion) in blue. The colour sequence can, of course, be altered.
