AFFINITY™ Quick Bite is a mousse-like bite registration material that flows better to capture more accurate details. Unlike other bite registration material Quick Bite is not brittle and has an ultra-high 90+ durometer cure to eliminate distortion during prosthetic fabrication. Quick Bite cures intraorally in as little as 45 seconds and will not compress during articulation at the dental laboratory.

The working time of Affinity Regular Set material is 1:45 mins with a setting time of 2:30 mins.
Affinity Fast Set materials have a working time of 1:10 mins and a set time of 1:45 mins.
Only Affinity uses branched resin chemistry for 3-dimensional cross-linking resulting in a higher tear strength, refined fillers, and an even distribution of surfactant. Other impression materials use linear resin chemistry with an uneven distribution of surfactant resulting in less accurate impressions that are more prone to tearing of the thin interproximal and sulcus fins.
Light and heavy body materials from another brand may be mixed but strict attention must be paid to the working and set times as they need to mimic or exceed Affinity’s.
Always keep the tip of the mixing tip fully immersed in the Light Body fully as it is syringed around the prep sites.
It is important to work quickly when loading Quad-Trays. Dispense Affinity InFlex in an S-pattern onto the non-prep side after running a bead of material around the periphery of the tray. Immediately turn the Quad-Tray over and repeat on the prep side.
If using Fast Set, switch to Affinity Regular Set impression material. Do not attempt to adjust the temperature of the material in order to slow down the set.
