Dental Applications

Alginate-based impressions are attractive as orthodontic study models for a variety of reasons.  These are fast setting at room temperature, easy to prepare, and very cost effective.  Alginates high in guluronic acid typically provide high gel strength impressions.  Alginates high in mannuronic acid content, on the other hand, will result in a softer or “pudding like” texture.
