1     Test conditions: temperature (23 ± 1°C, 73± 1°F), relative humidity (50 ± 10%). ISO 9917-2

2     These times are approximate only, and may vary based on storage conditions, humidity, age of product and temperature.

  1. Remove the syringe from the foil pack.
  2. Remove the cap from the syringe.
  3. Before each use, dispense a small amount to ensure even dispensing or to remove any dried out paste. Discard this material.
  4. Extrude required amount of pastes onto a mixing pad.

Important: Ensure the thumb is positioned firmly in the middle of the plunger to obtain the correct dispensing ratio of the two pastes.

  1. Using a spatula, mix the two pastes together thoroughly for 15 seconds. Be careful not to incorporate air bubbles.

Note: Do not expose riva cem paste directly to operatory light to avoid early setting of the material.

  1. Ensure the internal surface of the restoration to be seated is cleaned, dried and prepared according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Apply a thin layer of cement to the bonding surface.
  3. Seat the restoration within 30 seconds of completion of mixing before any light curing is carried out.


    1. Avoid overfilling crowns.
    2. Room temperatures above 23°C/73°F will reduce the working time.
  1. Light cure any excess material for 5 seconds per surface using a high power LED curing light (460-480nm emission).
  2. Gently remove excess material using a scaler or explorer.

Note: Excess can also be removed during self-curing gel stage (when cement feels rubbery), after 1 min 45 seconds.

  1. Maintain isolation for at least 4 min 30 seconds after seating of restoration.
