GC G-ænial Bond

  • GC G-ænial™ Bond

Self-Etch, Seventh Generation Bonding Agent

GC G-ænial Bond is a one-step, self-etch 7th generation bonding agent. Its HEMA-free formulation design improves bond strengths. Its easy application makes it the bonding agent of choice.

  • 7th generation, one-step self-etch bonding agent
  • Improved bond strengths over G-BOND and other leading bonding agents to both enamel and dentin
  • Designed specifically for “selective etching” technique to give the professional maximum advantages
  • Easy application – 30 seconds from application to finish

With the selective etching approach, G-ænial bond offers the best of both worlds: the simplicity and reduced post-operative sensitivity of a self-etch adhesive together with the greater bond strength that was traditionally found only with etch & rinse adhesives. The dimethacrylate monomer increases its permeability into enamel and dentin, while the increased level of phosphate ester monomer optimizes etching. The resulting nano-interaction zone – and the HEMA-free formulation are key factors for the superior and long-lasting bond strength.

  • Advantages

  • Can be used as self-etch adhesive or with selective etching of enamel
  • Creation of a nano-interaction zone for superior bond strength to both enamel and dentin
  • Excellent marginal integrity regardless of the technique and the composite material
  • HEMA-free for a long-lasting bond
  • Clinical reliability proven in independent tests
  • 5% filler seals tubules leads to fewer voids between the thin adhesive layer and the dentin, which minimizes microleakage and prevents microbial invasion

  • How to Use

Leave undisturbed for 10 seconds after application. Dry thoroughly for 5 seconds under MAXIMUM air pressure and light cure for 10 seconds. For the selective etching approach, apply 35% – 40% phosphoric acid on enamel for 10 seconds prior to the application of the bonding.
