DenTASTIC® UNO™ is a single component, 5th generation, total etch adhesive for use with all direct restorations and light cure applications. Pulpdent formulated DenTASTIC® UNO™-DUO™ as the dual cure catalyst for UNO. Mix two drops of UNO with one drop of DUO, and the result is a simplified dual cure adhesive for use with all self-cure and dual cure procedures, indirect restorations, and for bonding to composite core materials.
Pulpdent manufactures DenTASTIC UNO and UNO-DUO under license from patents developed by Dr. Ray Bowen and assigned to the American Dental Association Health Foundation. DenTASTIC UNO combines the patented PMGDM adhesive primer with hydrophilic resins and acetone solvent into an exceptionally strong single component adhesive that is the result of many decades of fully documented research. PMGDM is synthesized by Pulpdent in its laboratories using a proprietary manufacturing process known only to Pulpdent.
Research shows that one step wet bonding with the total etch 5th generation adhesive is the most reliable and provides consistently high bond strengths to both dentin and enamel. An independent testing organization rated UNO-DUO the best of the 5th generation dual cure adhesives for bonding to self-cure and dual cure core materials. UNO and UNO-DUO are also indicated as an adhesive for bonding to metal.
