Fuji IX GP - Packable Glass Ionomer Restorative / 15g powder (various shades)
GC Fuji IX GP is a wear-resistant high-strength fluoride-releasing adhesive glass ionomer for all age groups from paediatric to geriatric.
It out performs earlier products in every respect and provides a glass ionomer that can be placed carved and contoured using metal instruments without sticking. GC Fuji IX GP has been accepted as an extra-hard wear-resistant fast-setting restorative providing long-term results as an alternative to amalgam.
As a true glass ionomer, it chemically bonds to tooth structure, has a tooth-like coefficient of thermal expansion and releases significant levels of rechargeable fluoride. It is available in hand-mix powder-liquid and premeasured capsules. It's the perfect product for geriatric and pediatric restorations, final restorations (non-stress areas), Intermediate Restorative (IRM), core material and long-term, temporary restorations.
