New 3M ESPE bond with colour change

New Products Restorative

3M ESPE has introduced new Adper Scotchbond SE Self-Etch Adhesive, a self-etching adhesive that offers a unique combination of confidence-inspiring features and total-etch performance in a self-etch for reduced post-operative sensitivity.


In addition to consistently high bond performance, Adper Scotchbond SE self-etch adhesive features a colour change indicator to ensure proper placement and etch activation. The pink primer solution is a visual indicator of coverage. When the adhesive resin is applied, the resulting solution becomes clear, indicating activation of the system.

Incorporation of novel nanotechnology developed first for Filtek Supreme XT Universal Restorative into the bonded zirconia nanofiller of Adper Scotchbond SE has allowed radiopacity, helping to prevent misdiagnosis of pooled adhesive as secondary decay.

Unlike traditional self-etch systems, Adper Scotchbond SE self-etch adhesive's unique formulation offers good stability without requiring refrigeration or shaking.

Plus, new Adper Easy Bond Self-Etch Adhesive provides fast and easy application along with the reduced risk of post-operative sensitivity offered by a self-etch adhesive. Additionally, Adper Easy Bond adhesive is available in the easy-to-use unit dose delivery system that offers convenience and speed, leaving minimal time for contamination during procedures.

The new self-etch adhesive is excellent for bonding to all classes of direct composite restorations as well as root desensitization. Performance in independent tests has equaled that of one-bottle and two-bottle self-etch systems.
