No need for hand mixing and no refrigeration required for cleanup in the gel state.

ORANGE, California--The new Maxcem Elite self-etch, self-adhesive resin cement for indirect restorations takes simplicity to the next level.

Cleanup is easy in the gel state, and there is no need for hand mixing, and no refrigeration required. You get ease of use in one single step, yet there is no compromise to performance.

Bond strengths are higher than other leading cements in this category, and no bonding agent is necessary. Maxcem Elite is compatible with all common substrates. For more convenience, intraoral and post canal tips allow for dispensing of material into hard-to-reach places.

"With Maxcem Elite, Kerr has taken the self-etch, self-adhesive cement category to the next level with a technology further evolved and refined, making indirect restorations even simpler and easier for dentists across the globe," said Kerr Product Manager Mikhanh Pham. "Maxcem helped set the standard for simplicity in self-etching, self-adhesive cements, with a product that was easy to use for trusted clinical results," said Meghan Moore-Rizzo, director of product management. "Now, Maxcem Elite has raised the bar on simplicity and performance."

This material employs the same unique adhesive used in Kerr's OptiBond family of adhesives. The optimized resin matrix and filler systems improve wettability, resulting in greater adhesion and allowing for immediate light curing and better shelf-life stability.

Maxcem Elite's nonslumping property facilitates the placement of material and easy cleanup. A proprietary redox initiator system eliminates the inherent discoloration of BPO/tertiary amine initiator systems for a more esthetic restoration. Maxcem Elite leverages almost 50 years of experience in developing cements, underscoring Kerr's commitment to creating innovative, premium-quality products.
