Futurabond U is a dual-cure adhesive that comes in a pretty cool two-chamber single-dose delivery system. VOCO America patented this delivery system, which eliminates any evaporation problems. The little two-chambered pack is activated by pressing on one end to squish the contents into another chamber, which mixes them. Then a single-use applicator is used to puncture that chamber, stir the contents around further until the color is uniform, and it’s ready to use.
No additional activators are required for self- or dual-cure materials. Futurabond U can be used in self-, selective-, and total etch situations, and bonds to all light-, dual-, and self-cure resin materials, as well as metals, ceramics, and aluminum oxide, without any extra primers. Futurabond U is also useful for repairing fillings, ceramic veneers, and all-ceramic restorations without needing additional primer. It is also indicated to protect hypersensitive tooth necks, glass-ionomer cement restorations, and for luting root posts, and sealing cavities before placing amalgam restorations. Its easy one-coat application results in virtually no postoperative sensitivity and permanent bond strength due to its reinforcing nano particles. You'll appreciate the simplicity, and reduced waste, of this innovative delivery system.
