Dental gypsum DIN EN ISO 6873

5 types and 5 qualities - HINRICHS has the right gypsum

Types and description
The European countries have approved set instructions for dental gypsum.
Type 5 for super hard stone with high expansion are a new category.

DIN EN ISO 6873, which is binding for all manufacturers, classifies the products as follows:

Type 1: 	     Impression Plaster
Type 2:	      Plaster & Articulation Plaster
Type 3:	      Hard Stone
Type 4:	      Super Hard Stone (up to 0.15% expansion)
Type 5:	      Super Hard Stone (up to 0.30% expansion)

If comparing the data provided for the various gypsum, please ensure compliance with the times stipulated. Binding expansion must be determined 2
hours after, and pressure resistance 1 hour after water-gypsum contact. If other times or measuring units (e.g. Brinell hardness, hardness) are specified,
these are not comparable with the DIN EN ISO 6873 values and will mislead the user. Our quality controls at the plant are in strict compliance with DIN
EN ISO 6873.

Preparations of Impressions

In laboratory practice, problems between the various moulding compounds and gypsum arise time and time again. Since some
moulding compounds have an aggressive reaction towards gypsum, pre-treatment is required in order to prevent, for instance,
efflorescence on the surface of the gypsum model.
We therefore recommend the following measures:
