Universal Primer is for clinicians who prefer an adhesive/primer that does not need to be light-cured, fearing that the indirect restoration may not fit due to adhesive layer thickness. Universal Primer does not need to be light-cured for post cementation or under crowns, onlays, inlays, etc. and can be used in direct restorative procedures, such as core build-ups and composites. Universal Primer combines ease of use with virtually no post-operative sensitivity, and it is compatible with other cementation systems.
Universal Primer is available as a 2-bottle system and as part of the Duo-Link Universal with Universal Primer Kit.
Both Dual-Curable and Dual-Cure compatible
Can be used with total-, self- and selective etch techniques
Clinical evaluation confirms the ease of use as a benefit, with virtually no post-operative sensitivity
Provides a seal to minimize microleakage
No light-curing necessary when used for indirect restorations
Low film thickness (<5µm) allows the adhesive/primer to readily flow into etched surfaces and offers both chemical and mechanical sealing

Who is Universal Primer recommended for?
Universal Primer is a dual-cured primer/adhesive designed for clinicians who prefer not to light-cure the adhesive layer under indirect restorations.
Is Universal Primer compatible with ALL cementation systems?
Yes, Universal Primer can be used with all cements available on the market.
Should I use All-Bond Universal or Universal Primer for post cementation?
Universal Primer is ideal for post cementation due to its dual-cureablity and compatibility with light-, self-, and dual-cured composite and cement materials. All-Bond Universal may be used with posts that offer light transmission.
What should I prepare the internal surface of my restoration with, when using Universal Primer for crown & bridge cementation?
All restorations should be prepared following the laboratory or manufacturer’s instructions.
Zirconia, metal and composite restorations should be primed with BISCO’s Z-Prime Plus.
Glass ceramics, including lithium disilicate (e.g. IPS e.max) and feldspathic should be primed with BISCO’s Porcelain Primer or Bis-Silane.
Can Universal Primer also be used to bond direct restorations?
Yes, Universal Primer can be used for direct restoration procedures such as core build-ups and composites. It must be light-cured when used with light-cure restorative materials.
What’s the difference in film thickness between Universal Primer and All-Bond Universal?
Both All-Bond Universal and Universal Primer have the same film thickness (<5µm).
