Tips & Tricks
Motors, especially vane rotors, do not require that much Lubricant. However, motors require higher viscosity Lubricant than a High Speed Spray. We Recommend to use a Mineral Oil Lubricant.
We Do Not recommend the use of sterilization wipes on your Air Motors and Handpieces. These wipes, leaves a Residue on your Air Motors, and Handpieces. This Residue transfers to All Moving Parts causing them to fail prematurely. This may void warranty. We Do Recommend to use Pure Rubbing Alcohol without any Additives in addition to your sterilization methods.
