PQ1 is a syringe-delivered, single-component, light-cured bonding resin that uses ethyl alcohol as a solvent. PQ1 is 40% filled and radiopaque.
PQ1’s unique, patented chemistry bonds to dentin/enamel, cast metal,** porcelain, amalgam,** and composite. PQ1 is also effective for indirect procedures where light curing is possible.
* Not recommended with argon lasers. ** We recommend PQ1 Amalgam for highest bond strength with amalgam placement and to sand blasted cast metal. 1 www.realityesthetics. 2 Shear Bond comparison PQ1 Immediate to Dentin.
