Thanks to the new flip-top cap, the bottle can easily be opened, manipulated and closed with just one hand. In addition, its unique nozzle allows for controlled dispensing of the adhesive and ensures that there is minimal wastage. Together, these improvements are intended to enable ideal results for both the dentist and the patient.
Though its container may be different, the patented monomer technology of Kuraray Noritake Dental still forms the backbone of this product. Other adhesives tend to rely on “slow monomers” with relatively slow dentinal penetration, but CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick combines Kuraray’s famous MDP monomer—scientifically proven to deliver stronger and more stable bonds than other manufacturers’ MDP—with hydrophilic amide monomers. This allows it to penetrate the dentine faster and more efficiently and provide a stable, moisture-resistant sealing of the cavity.
This universal adhesive pairs excellently with CLEARFIL DC CORE PLUS, a dual-cure, radiopaque core build-up material, to deliver durable, long-lasting restorations that dentists can trust. Delivered in a convenient automix system, CLEARFIL DC CORE PLUS possesses excellent compressive and flexural strength, with a filler loading weight of 74wt%.
CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick is also suited for use with PANAVIA SA Cement Universal, a resin cement that similarly utilises MDP monomer technology for durable bonding. PANAVIA SA Cement Universal possesses a stable three-year shelf life at room temperature, effectively eliminating the need for refrigeration, and its improved endo tip allows for greater precision and control over cement placement during post cementation.
By combining excellence in performance with simplicity in use, Kuraray Noritake Dental’s CLEARFIL Universal Bond Quick represents an evolution in dental bonding agents.
