Nov. 18, 2009
Self-adhesive resin cement has been used for millions of applications around the globe.

3M ESPE has announced production of the 50 millionth capsule of RelyX Unicem Self-Adhesive Universal Resin Cement.

The self-adhesive resin cement has been used for millions of applications around the globe. RelyX Unicem cement has received several third-party evaluations through the years.

Since its launch in 2002, an ever-increasing number of dentists use RelyX Unicem cement. The self-adhesive material allows for quick and easy cementation that enables a strong bond while eliminating the need for separate etching, priming, or bonding.

Designed for permanent cementation of inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges, as well as endodontic posts made of diverse materials, the product allows for universal application. The cement is also available in a convenient Clicker Dispenser.

Numerous independent and third-party studies have attested to the performance of the cement. It features high physical strengths and low linear expansion, as well as color stability and hydrophobicity. High marginal integrity, which reduces the risk of debonding and postoperative sensitivity considerably, has been confirmed, too.

Jeffrey R. Lavers, division vice president, 3M ESPE, is proud the 50 millionth capsule has left the production line.

"The significant number of capsules produced during the last seven years reflects the outstanding reliability and clinical performance of RelyX Unicem cement," Lavers said.

"A combination of tradition and innovation, long-term experience, and new ideas are key to the cement's success. Its unique chemistry will secure our product a leading position in future markets as well."
