    SYDNEY, Australia (April 2021)

    Nearly a decade ago, 3M introduced the first truly universal adhesive. Since then, 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive has been clinically proven and has become the world’s most researched universal adhesive1.

    Now, Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive takes universal adhesives to the next level. It features all the benefits of the original plus new features to add even greater control and predictability.

    Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive offers a dentin-like radiopacity to reduce the risk of X-ray misdiagnosis and invasive overtreatment. Moreover, it can bond and seal caries-affected dentin to support minimally invasive preparation guidelines and maximize preservation of natural tooth structure. It provides gold standard adhesion to all dental substrates and restorative materials, including glass ceramics, with a formulation free of BPA derivatives like Bis-GMA. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive has full dual- and self-cure compatibility, eliminating the need for an additional dual-cure activator bottle when working with dual-cure composite cements and core build-up materials. Finally, the new universal adhesive forms a fully aligned two-component system with the new 3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement, offering excellent bond strength for virtually all dual-cure resin cement indications.

    Like its predecessor, Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is suitable for all direct and indirect indications and all etching techniques without the need for a separate primer or silane. And there is still virtually no post-operative sensitivity2.

    Offering greater control and predictability, Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is your new go-to adhesive that provides consistent results and patient satisfaction.
