Peak™ Universal Bond

Light-Cured Adhesive with Chlorhexidine (0.2%)
Peak Universal Bond adhesive's versatile formulation is ideal for indirect and direct bonding, including post and core procedures. With 7.5% filler, its viscosity has been optimized for minimal film thickness (2μm) and superior strength. The addition of chlorhexidine in Peak Universal Bond adhesive may provide the added benefit of improving long-term bond strengths.
  • Universal adhesive can be used in all bonding procedures, direct and indirect
  • Proven superior bond strengths1–4
  • Added chlorhexidine can ensure long-lasting bonds5–8
  • Available in syringe or bottle delivery
  • Certified gluten free

Technical Details

Highest Bond Strengths to Both Dentin and Enamel

Bond Strength Comparison
An additional internal study9 conducted by Ultradent’s R&D team tested 15 materials for shear bond strength. Seven specimens of dentin or cut enamel were made for each set. All sets were prepared according to manufacturer’s instructions and bond strength testing was conducted according to Ultradent’s testing methods, which were since adopted by the ISO as a standard for testing. The strengths were recorded and averaged. The Peak Universal Adhesive System recorded the highest bond strengths on both dentin and enamel.

Ideal for All Bonding Procedures

The Peak Universal Adhesive System features a universal bonding agent that is compatible with both self-etch and total-etch techniques. Its universal formulation works with all bonding substrates—including dentin, enamel, porcelain, metal, composite, and zirconia—and it provides superior bond strengths, making it the ideal choice for all bonding procedures.

Saves Time and Money

Because Peak Universal Bond adhesive can be used for all direct and indirect bonding procedures, including post and core procedures, it saves you time and money by eliminating the need for material-sensitive products and reducing inventory in your office.

Contains Chlorhexidine for Enhanced Bond Strengths

Peak Universal Bond adhesive's unique formulation contains a 0.2% concentration of chlorhexidine, which may ensure long-term bond strengths.5–8

Two Delivery Options

Peak Universal Bond adhesive is available in two delivery options: syringes for intraoral control, minimal waste, and preservation of critical, oxygen-sensitive ingredients, and bottles for easy dispensing and convenient delivery with an applicator brush.


Simple Delivery to Superior Bonding

Peak Universal Bond adhesive is delivered to the preparation site with the convenient applicator brush.


Peak Universal Bond Adhesive Step by Step

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

Step 1


A. Total-Etch: Etch for 20 seconds with Ultra-Etch etchant, then suction, rinse for 5 seconds, and dry

B. Self-Etch: Scrub Peak SE Primer into preparation for 20 seconds and air thin

Step 2


Place 1–2 drops of Peak Universal Bond adhesive into well

Step 3


Dip applicator brush into well

Step 4


Use applicator brush to apply Peak Universal Bond adhesive, scrubbing for 10 seconds

Step 5


Air dry with half pressure for 10 seconds

Step 6


Light cure with VALO LED curing light for 10 seconds in standard mode

Step 7

NOTE: If using syringe, affix Inspiral Brush tip. Test expression before applying. Follow steps 4–6.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’ve been a PQ1™ single-resin bonding agent user for a long time. Why would I want to switch to Peak Universal Bond adhesive?

    Peak Universal Bond adhesive is the result of years of research and development, and there are a lot of advantages Peak Universal Bond adhesive offers. For example, Peak Universal Bond adhesive is only 7.5% filled where PQ1 single-resin bonding agent is 40% filled, yet Peak Universal Bond adhesive offers higher bond strengths than PQ1 bonding agent (71.3 MPa vs. 62.8 MPa, respectively). Also, Peak Universal Bond adhesive works with both self-etch and total-etch techniques while PQ1 bonding agent only works with the total-etch technique. Finally, Peak Universal Bond adhesive includes chlorhexidine (0.2%), which may ensure long-term bond strengths.5–8 PQ1 bonding agent does not.
  • What substrates does Peak Universal Bond adhesive adhere to?

    Like its name implies, Peak Universal Bond adhesive is truly a universal bonding agent. It provides excellent bond strengths on dentin, enamel, composite, metal, porcelain, and zirconia.
  • Can I use a chlorhexidine product like Consepsis™ antibacteral solution in conjunction with Peak Universal Bond adhesive?

    Yes, but the appropriate time to use it will depend on the technique you use. If you’re using a self-etch technique, apply the chlorhexidine before etching. If you’re using a total-etch technique, apply chlorhexidine after the etchant has been rinsed and before Peak Universal Bond adhesive is placed.
