Porcelain Etch Refill
2 x 1.2ml syringes
Ultradent 90-second Porcelain Etch is used to etch porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and fractured dental porcelain. Ultradent 60-second Silane is used after hydrofluoric acid etching to prepare the surface for bonding resin.
Studies have demonstrated that Silane, when used with Porcelain Etch and a quality bonding resin, yields the highest bond strength to porcelain when compared with other porcelain bonding products. Both Porcelain Etch and Silane may be used intraorally or extraorally.
Porcelain Etch is a viscous, buffered 9% hydrofluoric acid
Etch is easy to control and place
Will not stain composite or resin cement
Silane is a single-component solution
Yields highest porcelain-to-resin bond strengths
Porcelain Etch and Silane may also be used on lithium disilicate (IPS e.max®2 ) restorations
Hints & Tips
Porcelain Etch features a high visibility yellow hue so you can see exactly where it is placed.
It is also viscous enough to stay where you place it.
Porcelain Etch and Silane are designed to be used together when etching porcelain to provide high porcelain-to-resin bond strengths.
When used with a high-quality bonding resin, Porcelain Etch and Silane can produce one of the highest porcelain-to-resin bond strengths compared to other porcelain bonding products.
When should I use Porcelain Etch and Silane?
Porcelain Etch and Silane can be used for etching porcelain, lithium disilicate, lithium silicate and other silica-based materials. It is not indicated for use with zirconia.
Will the Porcelain Etch stain composites or resin cements?
No, Porcelain Etch is a predictable, stain-free chemistry designed to give high visibility without discolouring materials.
Can Porcelain Etch be used intraorally?
Yes! Porcelain Etch is ideal for use with intraoral porcelain etching, but a rubber dam or EtchArrest must be used to protect nearby tissue and restorations.
