The degree of softness/density is determined by Therm-O-Flex® Pink's powder to liquid ratio by volume.
For the average sized denture use the following ratios:
- Firm: 20 cc Powder to 9 cc Liquid
- Soft: 20 cc Powder to 12 cc Liquid
- Softest: 20 cc Powder to 15 cc Liquid
Higher powder to liquid ratios may be used, however, a ratio greater than a 4 to 3 (powder to liquid) decreases the optimal physical properties of Therm-O-Flex® Pink.
CAUTION: Separate containers must be used when measuring Therm-O-Flex» Pink's denture liquid (ethyl methacrylate) and your currently used hard denture heat cured liquid — they are not compatible. Following this procedure will avoid cross contamination and polymerization problems.
