Total versatility.
Uncompromising performance.

Designed for uncompromising bond strength in fewer steps, 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive bonds to all dental surfaces, including enamel, dentin, glass ceramic, zirconia, noble and non-precious alloys and composites with no primer needed. In combination with 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal DCA Dual Cure Activator, Scotchbond Universal Adhesive is compatible with all resin cements, core buildup materials and even self-cure composites. Our unique formulation optimizes the ratios of the 3M™ Vitrebond™ copolymer, HEMA and water. This results in reduced dental restoration technique sensitivity, consistent dental bonding and virtually no post-operative sensitivity in self-etch, selective-etch and total-etch applications.
