SternVantage® Varnish LC is a light cure one-component surface coating material based on acrylates and cures without a smear layer caused by oxygen inhibition. It has been developed especially for cases where the surface of acrylate materials after polymerization exhibits an undesired or intolerable smear layer, where increased surface hardness is desirable or where the oral environment must be protected from elution of monomers out of freshly polymerized materials. Treatment of polymerized composite surfaces, custom trays or temporary crowns and bridges with Varnish LC yields a hard, high gloss, solvent and stain resistant, ultra dry finish with a smooth surface. Plaque formation and deposition of tartar is minimized. Varnish LC is cured with a common dental halogen light unit or in an UV or stroboscopic light unit.
