LIO Random Tips

Gypsum Molding Materials: If you cannot find Ultra-Cal 30 Stone outside USA, I hear that a brand called Crystacal R (in the UK) may be substituted. Other option: Internationally-worldwide, every major city has Dental Supply companies. You can use Dental Stone (not plaster) which have different names from dental suppliers; the Stone with the least expansion of about .07% or less. Also, do not get Dental Stone fortified with resin. I do not know how that re-acts to baking & foam rubber latex. Just use the harder density, dental gypsum stones.
