Description & Application
DVA’S “Jerry’s WOW Solution” consists of a silicone-based liquid packaged in a 16-ounce bottle designed for use as a gypsum-to-gypsum separator. The product is characterized by its lack of odor, incredibly clean separation capabilities and economical price.
Jerry’s “WOW Solution” derives its name from its outstanding performance and economy. Nothing separates gypsum like “WOW Solution.” It’s just a “WOW” product!
Background of Product Use and Competition
There are three basic types of dental separators:
1 . Acrylic Separators – designed as a tin-foil substitute. Tin foil was the original separator medium used to separate denture acrylic from the stone model during polymerization procedures. Many companies now sell a separator for this procedure. DVA’s “Acrylic-Plaster Separator” (“APS”) represents a separator of this class.
2 . Crown and Bridge Separators – designed to separate wax patterns or porcelain margins from stone models. DVA’s “Very Special Separator” is a separator of this class.
3 . Gypsum Separators – designed to separate dental stone from either stone or plaster. The “WOW Solution” represents this type of separator. Gypsum separators have three basic uses:
i. They are used to separate halves of a denture flask. Vaseline (as well as other competitive products) has also been used extensively for this procedure.
ii. For the mounting of articulating plaster to full or partial denture models for use during the setting up of teeth during the fabrication of the wax pattern. Again, Vaseline and other products have been used for this operation.
iii. To separate the first, arch pour and the second, base pour of a standard, ‘pindex-type model. It is this widely-used application for which we anticipate DVA will concentrate its sales efforts on behalf of the “WOW Solution.”
WOW Solution PIM
The market leader used for these applications appears to be ‘Super-Sep’ by Kerr Manufacturing. “Super-Sep” is an alcohol-based liquid characterized by an extremely strong ‘alcoholic’ odor. It
is also, compared to DVA’s new product, rather expensive. DVA offers twice the volume at virtually half the price.
As successful in the marketplace as it is, we do NOT believe ‘Super-Sep’ is as effective in its separation ability as DVA’s WOW Solution! Need we say more!
- DVA’s “WOW Solution” gypsum separator
- Totally Eliminates Odors from the working environment – it is totally odorless!
- Improves Separation of gypsum products – it simply performs better than competitive products! “WOW” only requires one, single application, and it
- Eliminates the need to re-soak dry models prior to making second pours.
- Saves Money – One receives ‘twice the product for half the price!’
