KB131111.01 - Tooth Whitening Gel Viscosities

When we created our gels, we discovered that most whitening gel manufacturers offered versions of gels that bore no relation to each other with regard to their thickness.  A gel of one type was one thickness and a gel of another type was another thickness.  We decided to eliminate this inconsistency and give our clients a way to accurately predict how our gels would behave after receiving any other gel of the same thickness.  Because many of our clients are re-packging our gels into syringes or other small containers, it is important to know how all versions of the product will behave.
