    Using advanced technology, APC™ Flash-Free Adhesive lets you move directly from bracket placement to bracket cure without removing adhesive flash – no clean up!

    A new transparent APC adhesive formulation is contained within a form-fitting fiber mat on the base of the bracket. When the APC Flash-Free adhesive coated bracket is placed on the tooth, the adhesive spreads out and conforms to the tooth surface, making uniform and consistent contact with no flash to clean up.

    With flash-free convenience, bonding can now be even better than you imagined. Now is the time to change from traditional bonding to the ease and efficiency of the APC Flash-Free Adhesive Coated Appliance System.
