Reviews

LuxaCore Automix Dual earned 4.4 stars out of a possible 5.0.
Strengths:
Has a typically syringeable consistency, but is relatively resistant to slumping. Exceeds dentin hardness at 24 hours when light-cured. Available in dual-barrel syringes and cartridges. A3 blends well with tooth structure.

Weaknesses:
Exotherms ranging from moderate to relatively high, depending on the shade. It never achieved high hardness values at the 7mm depth, regardless of whether it was light-cured or not. Relatively expensive.

Bottom line:
Started the automix core materials trend and still has many advocates, but it will probably work best if you place it in layers no thicker than 4mm.
