ST. PAUL, Minnesota--3M ESPE has announced launch of RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Self-Adhesive Resin Cement. This new material represents the next generation of self-adhesive resin cements and builds upon the long-term experience gained from its predecessor, combining convenience with reliable clinical performance. The cement will be available in an automix syringe with various application tips.The newcomer is based upon the same chemistry as RelyX Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement. It has been applied more than 50 million times and was subject to numerous clinical and laboratory studies.RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, but the enhanced formula provides improved color stability, bond strength and moisture tolerance. It also offers low postoperative sensitivity and high long-term stability. In addition, excess cement can be removed quickly and easily.RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement’s enhanced formulation offers more convenience due to its automix delivery system. The syringe extrudes the ready-mixed cement through mixing tips, which are available in different sizes: regular mixing tips for standard applications, endo tips ensuring a safe and void-free procedure when working in the root canal, and special intraoral tips for the cementation of inlays and onlays. As with the first-generation cement, the need for any pretreatment of the tooth, such as etching, priming and bonding, is eliminated.RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement is suited for the permanent cementation of all-ceramic, composite or metal inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges, as well as posts and screws. It can also be used to cement restorations to implant abutments, as well as Maryland, inlay, and onlay bridges.With its combination of technology and features, RelyX Unicem 2 Automix Cement has the potential to further improve and simplify procedures in the dental practice.For more information, visit read more about 3M ESPE, go to 3M ESPE.To comment on this product, go to
