Adhese Universal DC dual-cured adhesive for universal use

Ivoclar Vivadent has extended its line of popular dental adhesives. The new Adhese Universal DC delivers the same strong performance as the original product and additionally features dual-cure properties.


The fact that the adhesive can either be light or self-cured allows it to be used in many different situations. The single-component adhesive is suitable for cases where self-curing is required or desired in the placement of indirect restorations. Adhese Universal DC is ideal for the placement of direct fillings and for the adhesive cementation of indirect restorations. It features the same high quality as the clinically proven Adhese Universal. Its salient characteristics include high bonding values of >25 MPa on wet and dry dentine and an integrated desensitizing effect. Adhese Universal DC is designed for use with Variolink Esthetic DC. This powerful duo is recommended for the adhesive cementation of all restorative materials (e.g. root posts, opaque oxide and silicate ceramics as well as metal-ceramics). Adhese Universal DC is the ideal complement to the Variolink Esthetic system - especially in clinical situations where completely self-curing methods are required or desired. In conjunction with Variolink, Adhese, Universal DC is used in the self-cure mode - irrespective of the etching technique employed. The bonding results are excellent. The new adhesive is available in Free Stand® Single Dose units together with initiator-coated applicators in two sizes: Regular and Small/Endo.
