I ordered some time ago some Titan. I used it as a liner, but couldn't use it in the front...

I hope I don't offend someone, but what is so special about it? Why should I use Titan in stead of some other flowable like SDR, Clearfil Majesty Flow, Grandio flow,...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is a bad product, but in what does it outperform others?

It is stronger (I think) and highly radiopaque, so it looks pretty on an x-ray. The A2 is too white for my taste, so I'm extra careful lining the prep on anteriors.

Yes, it's radiopaque. That's a real plus over Grandio flow... Stronger? What properties?

Try the translucent or the A4.

WAY radiopaque.

We've done some elementary flexural strength studies and it's stronger. I need to refine them a bit to offer some concrete data.
