Resin Luting Cement

Duo-Link is a dual-cured luting cement with ultrafine filler particles and is intended to be used with an adhesive system. Available in a universal Translucent shade, the exceptionally high glass filler content increases strength making Duo-Link resistant to wear and staining. It is ideal for cementing all-ceramic/porcelain, metal, and composite restorations (inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges), as well as fiber and metal posts.

Unique Benefits:

  • Extremely high degree of conversion in both light-cured and self-cured modes ensuring maximum performance for any clinical situation
  • High glass filler content increases strength making Duo-Link resistant to wear
  • Low film thickness ensures the restoration is completely seated
  • Auto-mix dual-syringe guarantees a perfect mix, easy placement and limited waste

Clinical Significance:

  • Extremely high degree of conversion and stability ensures a long lasting restoration placement
  • A universal cement with a proven clinical track record

What is DUO-LINK and what are the indications?
Duo-Link is a dual-cured luting cement intended to be used with an adhesive system.

Duo-Link is ideal for cementing all-ceramic/porcelain, metal, and composite restorations (inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges), as well as fiber and metal posts.

What advantages does DUO-LINK provide over other resin cements?

  • Extremely high degree of conversion in both light-cured and self-cured modes ensures maximum performance for any clinical situation.
  • Ultrafine filler particles make Duo-Link extremely resistant to wear and staining.
  • High filler content of Duo-Link increases strength.
  • Low film thickness ensures the restoration can be completely seated.
  • Auto-mix dual-syringe guarantees a perfect mix, and easy placement.

What is the shelf life of DUO-LINK?
2 years

Do I need to refrigerate DUO-LINK?
No. Duo-Link may be stored at room temperature (20°C/68°F-25°C/77°F).

What is the working time of DUO-LINK?
Minimum 2 min. (includes mixing)

Can I use DUO-LINK to cement veneers?
Yes, however, BISCO recommends the use of a light-cured resin cement such as Choice™ 2 for veneer cementation. When placing thin veneers, it is preferable to use only light-activated resin cements. Light-only polymerized cements allow for longer working time, do not need to be mixed, have shorter finishing time, increased color stability, and longer shelf life.

What adhesive can I use with DUO-LINK?
Duo-Link s intended for use with an adhesive. Some manufacturer's adhesives are too acidic to properly bond to self -& dual-cured resins. ALL BISCO manufactured adhesives are compatible with self- & dual-cured cements. If you are using an adhesive from a different manufacturer, please refer to their instructions for compatibility.

What is the best way to clean up DUO-LINK?
To aid in the removal of excess cement, initially light cure the margins for 2-3 seconds by waving the light over the restoration or remove excess cement prior to curing.

Do I need to pre-treat the surfaces of my indirect restorations?
Yes. Silane should be used to prime the surface of glass ceramics. Z-Prime™ Prime should be used to prime the surface of metals, composites, and Zirconia.

What is the possibility that I might see marginal discoloration?
In addition to proper marginal fit, the following should be taken into consideration:

  • We recommend that you do not use iron-containing hemostatic liquids with translucent all-ceramic crowns. A grayish tint may develop underneath the translucent restoration a few weeks after cementation. Do not use ferrous liquids at the impression appointment or seating appointment.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidizing agent that decomposes chemical initiating systems. Hydrogen peroxide is not easily removed from the tooth surface by a water spray. Typically, Amine and Peroxide are the two basic chemicals that make up a base and catalyst reaction in dental cements. The use of Hydrogen Peroxide should generally be avoided with all resin cements.
  • Contamination from saliva and crevicular fluids can be a major cause of discoloration. Use of a rubber dam, when possible, should be considered.

Is DUO-LINK compatible with pre-fabricated core build-up materials?
Yes. The surface of the core build-up material should be roughened. Use alcohol to clean and dry, apply an adhesive according to manufacturer instructions.
