Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good bonding agent It does extremely well I like that you can use it for various techniques various treatment options

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bonding agent on the market! SBU is my favorite bonding agent. It offers me the flexibility to etch in different ways depending on the application. This has reduced the amount of sensitivity post op that I see. Film thickness is low and can be thinned easily. Works great in my hands!
