- Product Details
The Calset™ Composite Warmer heats composites to 130°F (54°C) or 155°F (68°C). Warming the composite increases the depth of cure, improves the composite flow, shortens curing time, reduces micro-leakage and improves the physical properties of the composite.
- Maintains constant temperature
- Increases degree of cure
- Warms finishing Instruments
- Shortens curing time by over 80%
- Improves composite flow by 68%
- Reduces Microleakage
- Improves physical properties
- Decreases shrinkage stress
- Third temperature setting of 98°F (37°C) available for warming anaesthetic cartridges
- Tray fits the CoMax, Caulk, Kerr (original model) SDI and Compo Jet dispensers
Calset Multi-Tray Composite Heater warms you compule in a dispenser gun, warms 2 finishing instruments, 2 syringes and 4 extra compules.
Calset Composite Heater with 8 Compule Tray warms 8 composite compules.
Calset Composite Heater with 7 Syringe Tray warms 7 syringes of composite.
Calset Trays can be purchased separately from the Calset warmer unit.
Instructions for Use
The Calset unit is designed to heat composite material, anesthetic solution and porcelain veneers. The Calset unit accepts composite from compules or syringed material. A tray placed on the top of the heater will either hold compules, or will have a holder for your composite dispenser. There are other trays.
Dr. Joshua Austin demonstrates how to use a Calset Composite Warmer.
“I’ve been using the Calset warmer for several years and it has become an indispensable part of my practice. Not only does it make today’s heavily filled composites easier to express, but heating enhances the physical properties of the resins, making for a stronger and more durable restoration.”

Q: Can Calset heat-treated composite be used for CEMENTING (i.e. LUTING) restorations?
A: Calset can and is being used for cementation of restorations. This is being done by several leading clinicians and at the University of Iowa Dental School.
Q: What effect does heat treatment with Calset have on polymerization shrinkage?
A: Heat is used to accelerate the polymerization reaction. All composites shrink in the course of polymerization to a maximum based on their individual properties. Heat just gets the material to reach maximal polymerization with lower light levels and in less time.
Q: Can composite be left in the Calset all day?
A: Compules can be left in the unit for up to 8 hours without causing premature polymerization of the composite. It is recommended that the Doctor chooses the shade and places the compule(s) in the Calset at that time, then continue prepping the patient.
Q: Does heating composite damage the pulp?
A: Data obtained at the Medical College of GA School of Dentistry indicate that the injection of composite resin heated to 130°F into a cavity preparation results in a pulpal temperature rise of only 2.9°F (Fred Rueggeberg, Medical School of GA School of Dentistry). This is well below the critical temperature rise thought to be the threshold for pulpal effects.
Q: How long does it take to warm the composite in the Calset?
A: When you turn the Calset on in the morning, it takes approximately 10 minutes to come up to temperature. Once the unit has been warmed, it only takes 2-3 minutes to warm the compule of composite.
