When used alone, RelyX Universal resin cement works as a self-adhesive cement with outstanding bond strength, according to the company, reliably solving routine cases with maximized efficiency. Scotchbond Universal Plus adhesive is described as the first radiopaque, all-in-one universal adhesive. It serves as a universal primer for all materials, including glass ceramics, and further boosts the bond strength of RelyX Universal resin cement.
As a fully aligned system, the adhesive is initiated and cured by RelyX Universal resin cement, thus saving the light-cure step.
These features reportedly reduce procedure steps and the number of required components to two, eliminating the hassle and confusion associated with the use of different resin cements, adhesives, and primers. This also reduces stock and saves time, space, and money, the company said.
Also, the new universal resin cement comes in the 3M RelyX Universal automix syringe. Due to its proprietary self-sealing design, it can be cleaned easily and stored without the used micromixing tip for better hygiene.
