When processing pressable ceramics, follow instructions regarding the heating and processing of the pellets. This includes:
- Burn out of the mold and plunger in a calibrated oven using the recommended temperatures.
- Quickly transfer the heated ring and plunger to the pressing furnace. Place the room temperature pellet(s) in thering and place warm plunger on top.
- Follow the pressing conditions in the manual. When at pressing temperature use 16 minute hold with a 7 minutepress unless using an Ivoclar oven.
Also note, if using a reusable plunger, do not grind surfaces which might cause improper pressure during the pressing cycles.
