The new standard of 2-bottle Universal Bonding
GC proprietary Dual-H technology
Dual-H Technology provides a smooth transition from hydrophilic to hydrophobic characteristics in the primed surface, which is then further strengthened by a truly hydrophobic protective bond layer.
Shock absorbing layer
Thick and strong bonding layer for stress absorption in posterior restorations, regardless to the etching modes !
Superior clinical handling
Excellent tooth wetting and low technique sensitivity in air drying.
Superior durability &
higher bond strength
G2-BOND Universal creates a physically stronger, more durable adhesive layer as the Dual-H Technology ensures a higher bond strength lower the risk of degradation.
Selective enamel etching
Application of 1-PRIMER
Application of 2-BOND
After photopolymerisation, the restorative material is applied
Compared to competitor
Dental Advisor, Number 147 – March, 2021
G2-BOND Universal performed better than Clearfil SE Bond 2 and Optibond FL tested in their respective etching modes to dentin and enamel in immediate 24h shear bond strength.
Frequently asked questions
G2-BOND Universal can be used for Direct Restorations, Repair of indirect restorations, Immediate Dentin Sealing and Treatment of Hypersensitivity. Furthermore, it can be used for luting in combination with GC G-CEM LinkForce and for Core Build-up in combination with GC Gradia Core.
All etching modes are possible and provide good performance. Selective etching of enamel is however particularly recommended, because it offers extra adhesion to enamel and reduce further the risk of over-etching and post-operative sensitivity on dentin.
Each bottle contains 5 ml and 300 drops.
The 2-bottle cover has a different design to ensure precise dispensing of the 1-Primer and 2-Bond, taking into account their different viscosities. They can be re-used with next purchased bottles, avoiding unnecessary waste.
G2-BOND Universal displays a layer of about 35µ thick. This thicker layer has been designed to help reduce contraction stress and play a role of a shock-absorbing layer. Thanks to its hydrophobic composition, this layer is designed to remain very stable in time and to keep the margins invisible.
In case a higher shrinking composite material is used, or in case the cavity presents several walls to be bonded at the same time, such as in Class I configuration, a thicker bonding layer can be used to participate in stress absorption. It is also very useful in case of Immediate Dentin Sealing.
Water Sorption is reduced, thereby limiting the hydrolytic degradation of bonding which can take place in time. This will help keep the visible margins invisible and maintaining the bond strength in time.
Yes, G2-BOND Universal contains silicon dioxide fillers homogeneously dispersed thanks to a proprietary GC technology. This helps to reinforce the bonding layer. Additionally, the monomers used are particularly strong & resistant to degradation, making it possible to maintain high flexural stress after thermocycling and wear resistance similar to flowable composites.
G2-BOND Universal displays is using 4-MET for adhesion to enamel and dentin; MDP for adhesion to enamel, dentin, composite, zirconia and metal (useful for repair and bonding to core build-up) and MDTP to bond to precious metal.
G2-BOND Universal can be stored at room temperature (1-25°C); away from direct sunlight. If not in use for a prolonged period of time, it should be stored in the refrigerator.
