Any suggestions on how to reduce bubbles that form during placement of titan. Love the stuff but the bubbles are a real PIA ESPECIALLY WITH 4.5X LOOPS! BTW going from 3.5 to 4.5 wide field is amazing! It's amazing what you miss at 3.5 compared to 4.5. Especially the bubbles Very Happy .


Regards

Change your loops back to 3.5, there were no bubbles then.

Sorry, no help. If you have more than 1 syringe, try a different one, maybe a bum syringe?

If you lose the specs altogether there are no bubbles at all! Razz


We're on it.

I think this was discussed before here, but store them with the dispensing tip upright....like in a coffee cup. We did that after first getting the product in late February, and had bubbles at that time.

Haven't seen any bubbles since doing this.

Please get in touch with me when a batch without bubbles comes out. I find that I am always using my tetric flow due to the bubbles. Thanks

Not one bubble for me doing what Murf suggests. Store them with the tip up and end of problem.

I am getting bubbles with Titan, too. For those storing the syringes upright, has this totally eliminated the problem? John, you mentioned in an earlier post, that you were on it. Any progress with the elimination of bubbles from Titan?

Thanks.

Jeff

Bubbles have been reduced significantly, but complete elimination is tough. Storing them upright does help, and warming it before upright seating is a good idea.

I really haven't noticed that bubbles are a problem for me.

I found a few years ago using revolution flowable that bubbles were everywhere....switched to tetric flow and the problem was gone.

I am currently using gradia lo-flo and have zero bubble problems....

but back to the issue of anchor it is very rare for me to see a bubble. I don't store them special at all. maybe it's the humidity.

I think we were discussing flowables and not Anchor.

But thanks for the tip about Gradia and Tetric Flow.

We think we have the problem largely in control. And Titan has a higher toughness and flexural strength than those two.
