De-Tak™ is used sparingly. The 15cc bottle will give hundreds of applications. Just place a small droplet on a mixing pad, coat the surfaces of the instrument and wipe off excess on the edge of the pad. Now you're ready to proceed. Re-coat the instrument as needed.
*Note: It is suggested that De-Tak™ not be used during the "mixing" of paste-paste composites, during placement of unfilled or partially filled flowable resins or bonding agents, as a substitute for the resin bonding agent, or to dilute the viscosity of a resin.
