iBOND Total Etch is a light-cured, fifth generation etch-and-rinse bonding agent that is indicated for bonding of direct composite restorations, bonding of indirect restorations in combination with light-cured luting cements, and for sealing of hypersensitive areas of teeth.

It contains nanofillers in an ethanol solvent, and can be applied in one coat. Light curing time is 20 seconds. No refrigeration is required once the bottle is opened for first use.

“While we are gratified by this very flattering evaluation, we were certainly not surprised,” said Heraeus Product Manager Amanda Holland.

“Another highly respected independent product evaluation organization tested iBOND Total Etch head-to-head against the market leader and concluded that our product was clearly superior in bond strength to both dentin and enamel. We have always felt that iBOND Total Etch is the best etch-and-rinse bonding agent on the market, and these impressive independent testing results have only strengthened our conviction.”
