Peak™ SE Primer

Peak SE Primer contains a strong acid (pH 1.2) with a resin base to ensure optimal etching performance for mechanical retention. The resin contains an ethanol carrier that chases the natural moisture in the tooth, drawing resin in behind it to seal off the etched area while also priming the surface to receive the adhesive. Peak SE Primer is the proven, superior choice for self-etching techniques.

Technical Details

Proven Superior Bond Strengths

Research has shown that Peak SE Primer delivers unmatched bond strengths on both dentin and enamel when used with Peak Universal Bond adhesive.1-4  In fact, in-house testing shows that Peak SE Primer’s self-etch bond strengths on enamel are higher (45.47 MPa) than the bond strengths many other competitor bonding agents provide on dentin.

Innovative Delivery with the JetMix Syringe

Peak SE Primer is delivered with the unique JetMix syringe, which keeps the acid and the resin separate until the clinician is ready to activate them. This prevents the premature hydrolytic breakdown that can occur with premixed self-etch chemistries, ensuring strong adhesion throughout the primer’s shelf life.

Ideal Properties for Reduced Sensitivity

Peak SE Primer features a drying agent and viscosity that allow the resin to penetrate and seal off the etched area, reducing sensitivity, while also providing a resin layer to receive the adhesive.

Peak SE Primer Step by Step for Indirect Bonding

See Instructions for Use for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.

Step 1

​Scrub Peak SE Primer onto prepared dentin for 20 seconds. (Do not scrub when bonding to enamel.)

Step 2

​Thin/dry for 3 seconds.

Step 3

​Apply a puddle coat of Peak Universal Bond and agitate for 10 seconds.

Step 4

​Thin/dry for 10 seconds and light cure for 10 seconds with VALO®.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long does Peak SE Primer stay stable after it’s been mixed in the syringe?

    ​The chemistry is assured fresh for 120 days following activation. We recommend you write the date of activation on the stem of the syringe to keep track of its shelf life.

  • Is the technique for applying Peak SE Primer to dentin different from the technique for applying it to enamel?

    ​Yes. When applying Peak SE Primer to dentin, use a continuous scrubbing motion for 20 seconds. Do not scrub when applying to enamel.

  • When using the self-etch technique, should I use chlorhexidine as a disinfectant?

    ​Using chlorhexidine during a bonding procedure is optional. If you’re using the self-etch technique, and you decide to use chlorhexidine, you should apply it before etching.
