Strong in any situation: Ivoclar Vivadent is pleased to present Adhese Universal DC, a dual-cured adhesive for universal use

Schaan, Liechtenstein – 14 September 2021

Ivoclar Vivadent, one of the world’s leading suppliers of integrated solutions for high-quality dental applications and a comprehensive product and systems portfolio for dentists and dental technicians is introducing Adhese Universal DC, a dual-cured, single-component dental adhesive in a single dose delivery form. The new dual-cure feature makes Adhese Universal DC highly versatile. It is the ideal adhesive for Variolink Esthetic in the cementation of all types of restorations and root canal posts. It opens up a host of new possibilities for dental practitioners in the placement of direct fillings and the adhesive cementation of indirect restorations.

Ivoclar Vivadent strives to make the work of dentists easier by offering them products and solutions that can be universally used. With this aim in mind, 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. 

Universal applications and high quality
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 dentin and an integrated desensitising effect.

Even better together
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.

Product delivery form & availability
The new adhesive is available in Free Stand® Single Dose units together with initiator-coated applicators in two sizes: Regular and Small/Endo. Adhese Universal DC will be available from leading dental suppliers and online shops from September 2021.
