We recommend using the hardness disk which was enclosed with your light. Our findings were 4.69mm of composite were cured in 10 seconds using Prodigy.
This disk is made of a barcol hardness of 75 which Is the acceptable bottom hardness of a well cured restoration. The disk is 3mm deep. Express your composite in one of the apertures and cure for 10 seconds. Reverse the disk, and using a sharp carbide carver scratch both the bottom of the composite and the disk. Compare hardness. If the composite is cured, they will feel the same.
Yes, the bandwidth is between 400 and 515 nanometers.
