3M ESPE Introduces RelyX™ Ultimate Adhesive Resin Cement
Dental cement delivers high bond strength and simplicity
ST. PAUL, Minn. – (Feb. 23, 2012) – 3M ESPE introduces the newest breakthrough in dental cements: 3M™ ESPE™ RelyX™ Ultimate Adhesive Resin Cement. RelyX Ultimate cement delivers industry-leading high bond strength, ease of use and world-class esthetics. Used in combination with Scotchbond Universal Adhesive, 3M’s newest dental adhesive introduced in October 2011, the two provide exceptional strength and simplicity. Approved for a wide range of indications, RelyX Ultimate dental cement is ideally suited for CAD/CAM and glass ceramic restorations.
Requiring fewer working steps, RelyX Ultimate cement’s unique formulation includes an integrated component that activates the dark cure function of the adhesive and eliminates the need for an additional activator. 3M ESPE’s new adhesive, Scotchbond Universal Adhesive functions as a silane agent for glass ceramics, as well as a zirconia and metal primer. Together, RelyX Ultimate dental cement and Scotchbond Universal adhesive require fewer components and offer dentists easier handling and reduced inventory. Additionally, RelyX Ultimate cement provides versatility that lets you choose a total-etch, selective-etch or self-etch technique.
RelyX Ultimate cement ensures confidence in cementing restorations. Studies show that RelyX Ultimate cement delivers stronger or comparable bond strength to tooth enamel and dentin than leading competitive cements.
RelyX Ultimate cement is available in four fluorescent shades that provide life-like fluorescence as well as superior color stability. RelyX Ultimate cement trial kits (available in A1 and Translucent shades) include a variety of mixing tips—regular, wide and intraoral - to ensure precise placement. The dual-barrel syringe contains 8.5-grams of cement paste – enough material for approximately 16 applications.
RelyX Ultimate Adhesive Resin Cement brings a new level of strength, simplicity and innovation to the industry.
