Over deze norm
This International Standard specifies requirements and test methods for root canal (endodontic) sealing materials which set with or without the assistance of moisture and are used for permanent obturation of the root canal with or without the aid of obturating points/cones. It only covers sealers intended for orthograde use i.e. a root filling placed from the coronal aspect of a tooth. Specific qualitative and quantitative test methods for demonstrating freedom from unacceptable biological risks are not included in this International Standard but it is recommended that, for the assessment of such biological risks, reference be made to ISO 10993-1 and ISO 7405. The main modifications are the following: - the test procedures for flow, working time and solubility have been revised and a new limit value has been set; - the test to determine dimensional change following setting has been removed.
