Highest Bond Strengths to Both Dentin and Enamel
A university study1 conducted at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, compared the shear bonding strengths of five bonding systems. The results showed that the Peak Universal Adhesive System yielded the highest bond strengths to both dentin and enamel. 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.

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.
