Announcing OptiBond™ eXTRa Universal Bonding Agent

The Self-etch Two-Component Bonding System delivering outstanding results regardless of technique.

Orange, CA. –  KaVo Kerr is excited to introduce OptiBond™ eXTRa Universal, a new self-etch, two-component universal adhesive. It features patented OptiBond™ GPDM technology with a universal solution for complete peace of mind in one consistent protocol. Because of its Smart pH technology, OptiBond eXTRa Universal is compatible with virtually all types of cements, composites, and core build-up materials and does not require any auxiliary products such as Silane.

With its patented GPDM Monomer, OptiBond™ eXTRa Universal ensures stronger and more reliable adhesion to tooth structures as well as resin material. Additionally, it contains acidic phosphate groups to fully anchor the adhesive to the hydrophilic surface of the tooth, plus more methacrylate functional groups than other adhesive monomers for a better interface with the hydrophobic resin.

Built on its predecessor OptiBond™ XTR, the new OptiBond™ eXTRa Universal continues our tradition of providing the gold standard in adhesion for dentists.” - Phil Prentice, Vice President Marketing KaVo Kerr

In short, the new OptiBond™ eXTRa Universal delivers more reliable outcomes that are less sensitive to technique or restrictions. It creates the compatibility dentists are looking for with both substrates and overall higher bond strength.
