General Heating and Working Time Instructions At-a-Glance

 

 

Masks

Optimum Temperature: 165˚F (73˚C)

Heat white or Klarity Green™ masks in an AirFlow™ Oven or waterbath at 165˚F (73˚C) for 3-4 minutes 

Green thermoplastic normally sets in 3-4 minutes, with a working time of 1-2 minutes, depending on thickness.  White thermoplastic normally sets in 2-3 minutes, with a working time of 45 seconds, depending on thickness.  

 

 

AccuCushions™

Optimum Temperature: 165˚F (73˚C)

Heat in an AirFlow™ Oven for 10 minutes, or in a Classic Oven for  20 minutes. Klarity AccuCushions™ will become soft and easily moldable when material is fully heated and ready to use. To prepare in a waterbath, leave the cushion in the plastic cover and heat for 5 minutes per side – and keep the lid shut – no peeking.  Cushions can also be placed in a blanket warmer and left in for several hours.  AccuCushions™  can be left in a heating device longer than the required heating time – an hour is safe.  Do not heat them at a higher temperature than 165˚F as the pellets will shrink.

The material normally sets in 7-10 minutes, with a working time of 3-4 minutes, depending on thickness and room temperature. 

Klarity AccuCushions™ can be reheated and remolded as needed per single patient.  Place cushions back in an oven for complete remolding, or use a hair dryer or heat gun for spot-treatment. Usually, if they have to be completely remolded more than twice, it's recommended to start over with a fresh cushion.
