3M ESPE has introduced the Elipar S10 LED curing light, featuring a one-piece stainless steel housing, according to the company.

The Elipar S10 LED light features a unique, ergonomic V-shape that provides a comfortable grip from various angles, the company noted. The shield of the device serves as a flat surface rest for roll-off protection, and the wand is cordless, making handling and performing procedures easier, according to 3M ESPE. The Elipar S10 LED light also has a magnetic light guide fixture for quick attachment and removal of the light guide, allowing for easy insertion, removal, and positioning.

The product offers up to double the optical power of other leading devices: 1200 mW/cm² of intensity out of a wide, 10-mm tip, according to 3M ESPE. It operates on a lithium-ion battery that provides 60 minutes of cure time before recharging is needed.

More than 80% of U.S. and German dentists who tested the Elipar S10 LED curing light found it very easy to use, rating the curing performance, robustness, and hygiene "very good," 3M ESPE said in a press release.
