Kuraray CLEARFIL Universal Bond
The adhesive bonds to zirconia, metals, and silica-based ceramics, including lithium disilicate, and does not need a separate silane coupling agent. When mixed with the CLEARFIL DC ACTIVATOR, it becomes a dual-cure adhesive that can be used with any self- or dual-cured resin cement or core material. No additional primer or activator is needed when used with CLEARFIL DC CORE PLUS/PANAVIA SA CEMENT. CLEARFIL Universal Bond’s high bond strength can be enhanced by using with a self-adhesive cement. The adhesive works on both wet and dry dentin using the total-etch technique, and its short application time reduces chairtime. During selective-etch mode, clinicians can use Kuraray’s K-ETCHANT syringe, which has a small diameter tip for precise placement. CLEARFIL Universal Bond is indicated for use in direct restorations using light-cured composite resin, cavity sealing as a pretreatment for indirect restorations, the treatment of exposed root surfaces, the treatment of hypersensitive teeth, intraoral repairs of fractured restorations, post cementation and core build-ups, and the cementation of inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, and veneers.
