G2-BOND Universal

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.

G-Premio BOND

Believe in Zero compromises
Simplicity

1 bottle and short procedure time

Ease of use

Touch cap bottle for easy dispensing

Aim for zero discoloration

HEMA-free formulation prevents hydrolysis leading to discolorations.

Attempt zero mistakes

Easy procedure with low technique sensitivity, G-Premio BOND offers a complete peace of mind during the procedure.

Zero compromises on direct/indirect restorations

G-Premio BOND can be also used for luting and repairs as it displays high bond strength values not only on enamel and dentin but also on metal and Zirconia.

Frequently asked questions

What are the indications of G2-BOND Universal?

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.

What is the recommended etching mode?

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.

How many drops are there in each bottle?

Each bottle contains 5 ml and 300 drops.

What is special about the bottle cover?

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.

What is the advantage of a thicker layer?

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 which clinical indication is a thicker layer useful?

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.

What is the advantage of a Hydrophobic Bond layer?

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.

Does G2-BOND Universal contain fillers?

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.

What are the functional monomers used in G2-BOND Universal?

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.

What is the storage recommendation?

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.

G-Premio BOND

Frequently asked questions

What are the indications of G-Premio BOND?

G-Premio BOND Universal can be used for Direct Restorations, Repair of indirect restorations and Treatment of Hypersensitivity. Furthermore, it can be used for luting in combination with GC G-CEM LinkForce or G-CEM Veneer and for Core Build-up in combination with GC Gradia Core and G-Premio BOND DCA.

Can G-Premio BOND be used with GRADIA CORE?

Yes, G-Premio BOND can and should be used with GRADIA CORE. In this case, G-Premio BOND should be mixed with its Dual Cure Activator to make it set even, especially in deeper areas.

Can G-Premio BOND be used with G-CEM LinkForce?

Yes, G-Premio BOND is part of the G-CEM LinkForce system. Its low film thickness contributes to a perfect adaptation of the prosthetic piece. If needed (e.g. for post luting), G-Premio BOND can be mixed with G-Premio BOND DCA to make it dual cure.

What is the recommended etching mode?

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.

How many drops are there in a bottle?

A bottle of G-Premio BOND contains 5 ml and 300 drops.

What is the rationale of having a silicon cover on the bottle?

This silicon cover was designed to protect the liquid from the heat transmitted by dentist’s fingers and to avoid evaporation of the solvents. It also offers a better control on the quantity dispensed: it is very easy to dispense drop by drop, which ensures reduction of waste.

Is it necessary to shake the bottle before use?

Yes, the bottle of G-Premio BOND should be shaken before use, to make sure all components are well mixed. Do not forget to close again the cap of the bottle immediately after dispensing.

What is the working time of G-Premio BOND?

The working time of G-Premio BOND is 7 minutes from dispensing time, in its dedicated dish (5 minutes on a flat dish). This enables to use the product for multiple restorations on one patient, thus minimizing waste.

How can G-Premio BOND achieve good bond strength values even with a very short application time?

Thanks to a new formulation, G-Premio BOND displays a faster dissolution of the smear layer and an improved infiltration. This enables the bonding agent to achieve sufficient bond strength to both enamel and dentin even with a very short application time, and regardless of the etching mode chosen.

What is the film thickness of G-Premio BOND?

G-Premio BOND displays a very thin bonding layer of less than 5µm (around 3µm).

How can it achieve such a thin film thickness?

G-Premio BOND displays a very thin layer thickness thanks to:

  • An excellent wettability, increasing the penetration of the adhesive in the collagen layer and thus diminishing the remaining thickness of the bonding layer
  • An efficient drying at maximum air pressure, helping to spread the bonding very well and evaporate all solvents

What is the storage recommendation?

G-Premio BOND 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.

Does G-Premio BOND contain fillers?

Yes, G-Premio BOND contains silicon dioxide fillers homogeneously dispersed thanks to a proprietary GC technology. This helps to reinforce the bonding layer.

Does it contain Bis-GMA, Bis-EMA or UDMA?

No, G-Premio BOND contains only dimethacrylates such as TEGDMA (same as G-ænial Bond).

Which are the functional monomers of G-Premio BOND?

G-Premio Bond contains both MDP & 4-MET, as well as MDTP. This results in an improved adhesion to enamel & dentin (MDP and 4-MET), to zirconia, alumina and non-precious metals (MDP) & precious metals (MDTP).

Why is it recommended to use a separate silane for repair of ceramics?

To bond to ceramics, a silane is always needed to achieve a stable bond. As G-Premio BOND does not contain silane, the use of a separate silane (eg. G-Multi PRIMER) is necessary prior to the application of the bonding agent.
When the bonding agent itself has silane inside, it simplifies the procedure but makes the bonding less stable. This can be seen in the bond strength after thermocycling, where this type of bond strength reduces after thermocycling.
So, an extra step is recommended to guarantee a stable and durable bond to ceramics.
