Do I need to refrigerate the ALL-BOND SE?
To achieve the maximum shelf life, All-Bond SE Adhesive (Parts I & II bottles or Ace All-Bond SE cartridges) should be refrigerated (2°C/36°F - 8°C/46°F). Refrigeration is not required if the product is depleted within sixty days. Refrigerate Ace All-Bond SE cartridge in its sealed pouch. Do not open pouch until ready to use. Allow refrigerated Ace All-Bond SE cartridge to reach room temperature before use. If refrigerating a partially used cartridge, it should be kept in the Ace dispenser.
What is the shelf life of the ALL-BOND SE bottles?
Do I have to shake the ALL-BOND SE prior to use?
How long can I use ALL-BOND SE after dispensing?
All-Bond SE is a light-cured material. Use All-Bond SE adhesive immediately once it is dispensed in the mixing well, or protect from ambient light.
Why should ALL-BOND SE be agitated during the application?
Agitation is important and will aid the clinician in properly incorporating the adhesive within the smear layer. As you agitate you also neutralize, raising the pH, this enables you to achieve a better cure and increases the quality of the adhesion.
Should ALL-BOND SE be applied on uncut enamel?
For best results, etch any uncut enamel with phosphoric acid etchant using the “Selective Etch Technique”.
Should ALL-BOND SE be applied on sclerotic dentin?
For best results, etch sclerotic dentin with phosphoric acid etchant.
What is the “Selective Etch Technique”?
Selective etch is a technique where uncut enamel margins are etched with phosphoric acid to ensure a strong bond to the enamel surface while preserving the benefits of self-etch on dentin.
Can ALL-BOND SE be light cured by LED?
Yes, the photoinitiator in All-Bond SE is camphorquinone (CQ), which is compatible with all dental curing lights.
How many seconds does it take to cure ALL-BOND SE with a halogen and LED light?
Can a different applicator be used?
Yes. All-Bond SE contains all components, including orange microbrushes. However, you may use any other applicator that is ethanol resistant.
How thick is the adhesive layer of the ALL-BOND SE?
The film thickness of All-Bond SE is only 5-10 µm. This makes the adhesive ideal for use under all indirect restorations.
Why are the majority of self-etching adhesives not indicated for use with self -& dual-cured materials?
Self-etch adhesives are highly acidic, due to their self-etching nature, and therefore many are not recommended to be used with self-cured composites or luting cements.
The adhesion of auto-/dual-cured composites may be improved with the adjunctive use of ternary catalysts that offset the acid-base incompatibility between acidic methacrylate monomers and tertiary amines. All-Bond SE has such a catalyst incorporated into the adhesive system, allowing it to be fully compatible with all self- & dual-cured materials.
