Bonding has been a big deal at Ultradent for a long time. After spending years researching tooth structure, adhesive properties, and maximum bond strengths, our work caught the attention of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Just last year, they adopted our very own shear bond strength testing method as a new ISO standard. We couldn’t be more proud.
From the beginning to where we are today, we’ve made some important strides in bonding-adhesive technology. PQ1TM was developed between 1995 and 1997. We continued on to perfect our bonding and control our synthesis process better, learning that if we swap out the larger filler particles for nanofillers, it aids in thinning for the average user while still maintaining the same high bond strength in the lab. That knowledge is what led to the birth of our Peak line of adhesives.
We’re lucky to live in a time where we can practice adhesive dentistry in a way that is both minimally invasive and also more comfortable for the patient. With our advancements in bonding adhesives, it is possible to bond to dentin and enamel at extremely high values while also virtually eliminating sensitivity, so you can be confident you’re giving your patients what they really want: a healthy, pain-free smile.

Peak® SE Primer
Peak SE Primer maintains its stability 120 days after the first application!
A strong acidic content (pH 1.2) gives Peak SE Primer the power to ensure optimal etching
Self-etching primers don’t work well on enamel.
Peak SE works well on enamel. It can achieve higher bond strengths to enamel than competitors!

Bright blue color allows for easy visibility
Self-limiting in its depth of etch for reduced sensitivity1
Etchants should penetrate as deeply as possible.
The ideal etching depth is less than 2µm. Ultra-Etch is proven to be uniquely self-limiting in its depth of etch, with an average depth of 1.9µm.

Peak® Universal Bond
Highest Bond Strength on Dentin and Enamel!2–5
Ideal with total-etch and self-etch techniques and bonds to...
Low filler content
Minimal film thickness gives you a thin, uniform surface that is ideal for bonding
The preparation must be completely dry before applying the bonding adhesive.
Peak Universal Bond works best when the preparation is left slightly damp.
