Futurabond® U – Dual-curing universal adhesive
With the dual-curing SingleDose Futurabond U VOCO offers the market's only true universal adhesive in a disposable applicator. Besides the incredibly simple handling of the SingleDose the Futurabond U provides practitioners an outstanding range of options for application, as much with regard to indications as to selection of the etching technique or the curing mode. Self-etch, selective-etch or total-etch: Futurabond U allows practitioners to freely select how they wish to condition the dental hard tissue, depending on the individual clinical situation and their preferred way of working.
Applied in a single layer, this universal adhesive creates a strong bond to enamel and dentine, thus ensuring a durable, gap-free bond between the dental hard tissue and the restorative material. At the same time it offers firm adhesion to different materials such as metal, zirconium/aluminium oxide and silicate ceramics without any additional primer. An outstanding bond strength is also guaranteed in cases of chemical curing, thus making Futurabond U ideal for luting posts within the root canal.
This universal adhesive is fully compatible with all light-curing, dual-curing and self-curing methacrylate-based composites and is suitable for both direct and indirect restorations – and without any additional activator for dual-curing. Futurabond U can furthermore be used for desensitising hypersensitive tooth necks and after cavity preparation, and it is suitable as a protective varnish for glass ionomer cement restorations.
The patented SingleDose guarantees fast, simple working as mixing errors are ruled out from the start, and the product is very hygienic. Futurabond U is available as a trial kit containing 20 SingleDose blister packs, a 2 ml Vococid syringe plus cannulae, as well as 20 SingleTim for application. The bonding material also comes in SingleDose packs of 50 and 200.
