New products: RelyX Ultimate


3M ESPE introduces RelyX™ Ultimate – a new adhesive resin cement specifically designed for the cementation of glass ceramic materials. The product provides ultimate bond strength and leads to highly aesthetic results that last over time. Used in combination with the new Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive, reduces the number of required components and steps.

The new adhesive resin cement RelyX Ultimate complements the existing portfolio of resin cements. When used together with Scotchbond Universal adhesive, the procedure is particularly simple: an integrated dark cure activator in the cement activates the dark cure function of the adhesive thus eliminating the need for an additional activator. Scotchbond Universal adhesive also functions as a silane agent for glass ceramics as well as a zirconia and metal primer, thus eliminating the need for separate components. Fewer components, fewer working steps: means not only easier handling but also less risk of errors. Last but not least, it reduces your inventory.

The cement’s automix syringe offers a variety of mixing tips that allow for convenient cementation in the mouth (intra-oral tip) or even in the root canal (using an endo tip).

Independent studies show that RelyX Ultimate cement users benefit from high bond strengths to enamel and glass ceramics as well as low three-body wear when compared to other resin cements. Further tests show the high colour stability and tooth-like fluorescence of the new cement. Aesthetic results can be obtained using the four different shades and corresponding try-in pastes.
