The 3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative uses an optimal blend of ﬁllers and monomers designed to maximise strength, wear resistance and radiopacity and minimise shrinkage. The innovative syringe design virtually eliminates bubbles or “run-on” to give you more control for precise placement in deep restorations.
Discover what makes 3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative innovative – including its easy-to-use, ergonomic syringe.
The 3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative provides easy adaptation in deep restorations with little or no instrumentation, thanks to its low viscosity. An intelligent selection of monomers and ﬁllers that provides low shrinkage and low polymerization stress produces a restorative that can be used to perform bulk ﬁll restorations with a depth of cure of up to 4 mm. This ﬂowable composite resin ﬁlling is excellent as a bulk ﬁll base or as a low-stress liner.
Syringe design virtually eliminates bubbles and material “run-on”.
Triangle finger plate and plunger make it easier to hold and inject.
Syringes can be warmed up to 70ºC/158ºF for up to one hour, up to 25 times.*

The syringe features an ergonomic, easy-to-hold plunger along with a bendable cannula and requires less eﬀort to dispense, increasing comfort and enabling precise placement. The upgraded tip features a tapered inner wall design that matches the taper angle of the syringe itself. The continuous and smooth tapered surface allows the pocket of air created with each new tip attached to be pushed out of the tip by the ﬂow in front of the paste. The green syringe barrel doubles as an indicator of how much ﬂowable composite is remaining. When no green is visible on the barrel, the syringe is out. The plunger includes a venting feature that allows air to escape during the manufacturing process which results in virtually no bubbles or “run-on.”
