Monobond Etch & Prime has been extensively tested by numerous study groups from around the world. In conventional in vitro investigations for bonding agents, the single component ceramic primer technique was compared with established protocols involving hydrofluoric acid etching and silane application. The preferred methods of investigation included tensile bond strength and shear bond strength tests as well as ageing by means of thermocycling.
The investigations show: The bond established by Monobond Etch & Prime between the glass-ceramic and the luting composite is comparable to that created with the hydrofluoric acid and silane method. In addition, the product’s application protocol is much shorter and it eliminates the need for using hydrofluoric acid.
