When applied to dental stone and plaster models, Tanaka Stone Surface Sealer both seals and strengthens the material to prevent wear, abrasion and chipping while making it resistant to water and other media which might deteriorate its surface. Because it actually penetrates into the stone without residue buildup, Stone Surface Sealer can be used to seal and strengthen working dies without loss of dimensional accuracy, and seals in pencil markings on margin lines, reference numbers, etc. Model...
Tanaka Staining Medium prolongs the use of surface stains by inhibiting dry-out and, unlike glycerin-based products, leaves no residue after firing. Applied to bisque fired restorations, Tanaka Staining Medium duplicates the color to be achieved by glaze firing and provides an ideal wetting for the elimination of microporosity when stains and glazes are applied.  Available in 2 oz dropper bottles. Recommended usage with Star-Dust Glazing Powder and ZirChrome Nano Stains

When used in combination with the AT-4 Opaque Instrument, superior results can be routinely achieved. Tapping condensation while drying with a hai...
When a second application and firing of porcelain is required— such as margin repair or the addition of proximal or occlusal contacts— Tanaka Margin-X™ Porcelain Extension Liquid, when mixed with porcelain powders, inhibits dry-out and ensures adequate time for condensing. Comes in Pink and Blue
