EdgeSequel Sapphire™ is used exactly like Vortex®, Vortex Blue®, and EndoSequence®. EdgeSequel Sapphire™ tests at twice the cyclic fatigue as Vortex® Blue and eight times the cyclic fatigue as Vortex® and EndoSequence®.
EdgeSequel Sapphire™ has a triangular cross section with an open flute design and is a constant taper up to the cutting flutes (cutting flute length is 15 mm). Comes in .04 15-90 and .06 15-50 taper sizes and tips. Available in lengths 21mm, 25mm and 31mm with four same size files in each pack. EdgeSequel Sapphire will help elevate your technique and practice.

CYCLIC FATIGUE TEST – AVERAGE TIME TO FAILURE IN SECONDS*
- EdgeSequel Sapphire®
- Vortex Blue®
Cyclical fatigue test was performed using a custom test system with each file rotated at 500 RPM while 3mm of the file tip was inserted in a test block with a 90° curvature. Time to failure (seconds) was measured for each instrument.

File behaviors such as “No Bounce Back” can be viewed on our videos.
We have both EdgeCore® and EdgeFill® for EdgeSequel® in sizes 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 70 80 and 90.
