If you’re at all like many of the dental practices and laboratories around the country, you’re either closed down or with greatly reduced hours. I don’t know about you but, frankly, I’m just not used to such idle time!! I’ve been wanting to stay busy, keeping moving forward and catching up on the long-list of cases and projects that I have been wanting to work on! Now the challenge is I ran into an issue that may be challenging with 3D printing on a regular basis – lack of isopropyl alcohol in the stores!
In the run up of COVID-19, many reports of running out of hand sanitizers has resulted in panic buying of other alcohols such as 70%, 91%, and 99% isopropyl alcohol. Why? Many people feel they can make their own sanitizers. A risky proposition but in reality, challenging to craft. How does it affect us, as dentists, technicians, and teams with 3D printing? A challenge finding fresh IPA to replenish our limited reserves!!
In this video, I cover some tips on how to conserve your remaining IPA stock (assuming you have at least have some IPA in your wash stations) and still be able to 3D print.
