2)  The impression material should have a good flow ,so that it ready flows into the cervices & undercuts.

3)  It should have a viscid consistency , that is it should not be too thick or too thin in consistency.

Impression Material
        a) Non-elastic        Rigid
                                     Plastic---  Thermoplastic 

        b) Elastic
                       ---Hydro colloid  
                                   Silicon   =
                                                  =Condensation silicon
                                                  =Polymerized silicon
                                                Rubber base
