You can use either 10% or 37% phosphoric acid to etch both dentin and enamel. The Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive System was designed to give you the maximum flexibility in your etching procedure. Therefore, if you prefer a less concentrated solution choose the 10% acid. As long as the contact time is appropriate, your etching technique will not affect bond strength.
Total Etch Primer/Adhesive
Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive is a 5th generation total-etch bonding system that provides high bond strengths in a convenient single bottle application. This versatile system can be used for all your bonding procedures. Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive has been proven to create the ideal sealed surface and interpenetrated network of the polymerized primers and unfilled resin, resulting in a high bond with a low film thickness of only 8µm.
- Simple, time-saving and reliable bonding system
- High bond strength to both dentin and enamel
- Extremely versatile system - bond direct or indirect, light or chemical cured composites, porcelains, metal restorations and amalgam to tooth structure
- Low film thickness assures the ideal surface to bond to restorative materials
- More Info
Yes. Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive is hydrophilic and works best on moist dentin.
Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive results in a film thickness of 8 microns when cured.
The bond strength to dentin is 31 MPa, and to enamel is 27 MPa.
For maximum shelf life, store Bond-1 Primer/Adhesive in the refrigerator.
