Just wanted to make sure. The IRM that comes in the white capsules that has to be triturated.

IRM does have eugenol in it (as well as zinc oxide, and several other ingredients.) Not sure about capsules, since the IRM in our school is a liquid/powder mix. The liquid is what has most of the eugenol in it. The only thing we triturate is amalgam and Fuji 9.

They make a trituratable IRM? That would be awesome. No more forearm cramps from mixing that stuff. Seriously, mixing IRM is no fuin.

Awesome! I'll have to try some. What's the texture after it's done shakin'? The only benefit of mixing yourself is if you need a particular thickness. And is it ANY less sticky and easier to place?

Actually the pre-mixed capsules are very very sticky. We'll use them and have powder ready to add to it because of how sticky it is.
