RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement

RelyX™ Unicem Self-Adhesive Resin Cement

Which material would you trust?

RelyX Unicem’s unique chemistry raises its pH value to a neutral level of 7 quickly after setting. This contributes to the material becoming hydrophobic‚ meaning it is better able to resist water uptake and more stable over time.

RelyX™ Unicem 8-year Clinical Performance

Ease of Use

This resin cement was specially formulated to be self-adherent and moisture tolerant, eliminating the need for separate etching, priming or bonding steps. This saves time and greatly reduces the potential for patient sensitivity compared to other resin cement systems that require etching and bonding. Like other RelyX™ Cements, the excess product is easy to remove.

High Performance

RelyX Unicem cement has been extensively tested by industry experts. Tests show:

  • Excellent adhesions
  • High physical strengths
  • Low linear expansion
  • Superior marginal integrity

The cement also provides the esthetic properties required for use with all-ceramic/composite restorations.* These qualities make RelyX Unicem self-adhesive resin cement an ideal solution for dentists worldwide.

*For veneers, use RelyX™ Veneer Cement from 3M ESPE.
