VOCO Futurabond M

Nov. 1, 2010
New adhesive from VOCO is reinforced with nano particles.
Futurabond M, a new all-in-one self-etch adhesive, helps ensure high bond strengths on dentin and enamel. The new adhesive from VOCO is reinforced with nano particles. Thanks to nano-technology, Futurabond achieves a high level of stability and uniform adhesion with the tooth substance and restorative. Nano-scaled silicon dioxide particles with a diameter of ca. 20 nm (0.00002 mm) provide for cross-linking of the bond’s resin components and improve its film building properties. The adhesive optimally wets the released collagen fiber,s and the micro-retentive etching pattern is created on the enamel during the etching process. The sensitive collagen fiber network therefore cannot collapse, and is integrated into the adhesive layer. The far-reaching resin tags in the dentin tubules harden during polymerization and strengthen the retentive bond of the collagen fibre-bonding hybrid layer. This effective combination of micro-mechanical and chemical anchoring also provides long-lasting marginal integrity and the avoidance of postoperative sensitivities. Futurabond M is quick to use and takes only 35 seconds from application to light-curing with only one layer to apply. Futurabond M has a working time of up to five minutes. This permits short breaks during application without compromising the quality of the adhesive. Futurabond M is available in economic bottles or in VOCO’s patented hygienic single-dose blisters. The single-dose system helps overcome the problem of solvent evaporation, which weakens the bond strength that occurs when bottles are left open. For every application, a new Futurabond M Single Dose will be opened just seconds before use.For more information, call (888) 658-2584 or go to read more about VOCO, go to VOCO.To comment on this product, go to
