RelyX Unicem Cement Capsules Hit the 50 Million Mark
I have used RelyX and its a wonderful cement. MJ
ST. PAUL, Minn. – (November 3, 2009) – 3M ESPE announces the production of the 50 millionth capsule of RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement. The first ever self-adhesive resin cement has proven its value in millions of applications around the globe. RelyX Unicem cement has received several third party evaluations over the years, such as CR Foundation, Townie Choice Award for Cements, and The Dental Advisor +++++ rating along with their “Top” and “Preferred Product” Awards.
Since its launch in 2002, an ever-increasing number of users trust the world market leader, RelyX Unicem cement. The self-adhesive material allows for quick and easy cementation enabling a strong bond, while eliminating the need for separate etching, priming or bonding. Designed for permanent cementation of inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges as well as endodontic posts made of diverse materials, the product allows for universal application. The cement is also available in the convenient Clicker™ Dispenser.
Numerous independent and third party studies have attested to the extraordinary performance of the cement. It features high physical strengths and low linear expansion as well as impressive color stability and hydrophobicity. High marginal integrity, which reduces the risk of debonding and post-operative sensitivity considerably, has been confirmed as well.
Jeffrey R. Lavers, Division Vice President, 3M ESPE, is proud of the 50 millionth capsule leaving the production line: “The significant number of capsules produced during the last seven years reflects the outstanding reliability and clinical performance of RelyX Unicem cement. A combination of tradition and innovation, long-term experience, and new ideas are key to the cement’s success. Its unique chemistry will secure our product a leading position in future markets as well.”
