NoCord™ Wash Material
NoCord™ Wash Material is part of the NoCord™ VPS Introductory Kit and One-Step, Self-Retracting Impressioning System. NoCord Wash Material is the first wash material to incorporate a hemostatic agent to control bleeding and fluid flows. It is a low viscosity, light body VPS material that retracts the gingiva and stops fluid flow when the compressive action of the high viscosity, NoCord™ MegaBody™ Tray Material is applied.
NoCord™ Wash also includes 15% alum (ammonium aluminum sulfate) as an astringent agent to control bleeding as a further measure to keep the site dry and to save steps and time. Having exposed the sub-gingival margin, NoCord Wash then cures with MegaBody Tray Material to provide a high detail, low shrinkage, clear, final impression.
Kit (available in 2 or 10-pack) includes:

What is NoCord™ VPS One-Step, Self-Retracting Impressioning System?
NoCord VPS is a unique impressioning system that makes impression taking easier, more predictable and assured. It’s designed to take impressions without separate gingival retraction and hemostatic control steps.
What makes NoCord VPS system unique compared to other VPS impression materials?
Our revolutionary NoCord Wash Material retracts the gingiva, stops fluid flow and controls bleeding therefore eliminating time and costs of packing cord and applying hemostatic agents. NoCord Wash contains 15% alum to constrict capillary oozing, control bleeding and displaces gingival crevicular fluids to provide dry, bubble free margins. When NoCord Wash Material is used with our NoCord MegaBody Tray Material, it drives the wash into the sulcus and pushes the tissue. The combination of both provides a clear final impression.
