RelyX™ Unicem 7-year Clinical Performance

Which material would you trust?

RelyX Unicem’s unique chemistry raises its pH value to a neutral level of 7 quickly after setting. This contributes to the material becoming hydrophobic‚ meaning it is better able to resist water uptake and more stable over time.

 

For years, doctors have trusted RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement from 3M ESPE to deliver a strong bond - without etching, priming or bonding. Now in our award-winning Clicker™ Dispenser, it also eliminates the need for measuring, saving even more time.

Ease of Use

This universal resin cement was specially formulated to be self-adherent and moisture tolerant, eliminating the need for separate etching, priming or bonding steps. This saves time and greatly reduces the potential for patient sensitivity compared to other resin cement systems that require etching and bonding. Like other RelyX™ Cements, the excess product is easy to remove.

High Performance

RelyX Unicem cement has been extensively tested by industry experts. Tests show:

  • Excellent adhesions
  • High physical strengths
  • Low linear expansion
  • Superior marginal integrity

The cement also provides the esthetic properties required for use with all-ceramic/composite restorations.* These qualities make RelyX Unicem self-adhesive universal resin cement an ideal universal solution for dentists worldwide.

*For veneers, use RelyX™ Veneer Cement from 3M ESPE.
