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 (2 μm) and superior strength. Peak Universal Bond also contains 0.2% of chlorhexidine that helps ensure long term bond strengths by preventing the degradation of collagen in the dentin or hybrid layer due to matrix metalloproteinases (MMP).1

  • Universal adhesive can be used in all bonding procedures, direct and indirect
  • Proven superior bond strengths2
  • Available in syringe, bottle, and unit dose delivery
  • Use with Inspiral™ Brush tip
  • Certified gluten free

to Peak

Strong substrates need strong bonds, and a strong bond starts here. Peak Universal Bond adhesive’s formulation is ideal for direct and indirect bonding, including post and core procedures. After decades of refinement, Peak Universal Bond adhesive’s viscosity has been optimized for minimal film thickness and superior strength. Its balanced chemistry thins easily to not interfere with seating a final restoration. With such an award-winning adhesive, dental professionals cannot go wrong with Peak Universal Bond adhesive.

Dymetech Technology

The 10-MDP monomer (Image 1) is a long-chained monomer that consists of a methacrylate group on one end and a phosphate group on the other. This can limit the number of bond interactions. The Dymetech monomer blend in Peak Universal Bond adhesive (Image 2) has more functional groups (phosphates and monomers) than 10-MDP which creates a greater amount of bond interactions.

Highest Bond Strengths to Both Dentin and Enamel2

An internal study 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. Peak Universal Bond adhesive recorded the highest bond strengths on both dentin and enamel.3

Contains Chlorhexidine For Better Bond Strengths

Peak Universal Bond adhesive contains 0.2% chlorhexidine to help ensure long-term bond strength.4 In vivo studies have shown that restorations not treated with chlorhexidine (CHX) exhibited a significant DECREASE in the structural integrity of the collagen network and in bond strength (38% bond strength degradation vs. no degradation in CHX-treated teeth).5 Ultradent has set the standard for creating quality, durable restorations.

More Options for Delivery

bond adhesive bottle

Peak Universal Bond Adhesive Bottle

Use the 4 ml bottle for easy dispensing and convenient delivery with an applicator.

peak unit dose

Peak Universal Bond Adhesive Unit-Dose

The unit-dose delivery method allows for intraoral control, minimal waste, and preserving critical oxygen-sensitive ingredients.

1.2ml syringe

Peak Universal Bond Adhesive 1.2 ml Syringe

Easily switch out the tip for multiple uses with the 1.2 ml syringe. The syringe delivery also limits the air that comes into contact with the adhesive, reducing solvent evaporation.

metal dento-infuser tip

Metal Dento-Infusor™ Tip

Peak Universal Bond adhesive comes ready to use with the Inspiral Brush tip, and also works great with the Metal Dento-Infusor tip. The Metal Dento-Infusor tip works well when Peak Universal Bond adhesive needs to be scrubbed into dentin thanks to its blunt, bent cannula and padded brush end.

Technical Details

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 has higher bond strengths across more indirect restorative materials than leading competitors8, making it the ideal choice for all bonding procedures.

Three Delivery Options

Peak Universal Bond adhesive is available in three delivery options: syringes for intraoral control, minimal waste, and preservation of critical, oxygen-sensitive ingredients; bottles for easy dispensing and convenient delivery with an applicator brush; and unit-dose bottles that are as easy to use as our larger bottles, but come in a convenient unit-dose size.

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.


Simple Delivery to Superior Bonding

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

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 helps ensure long term bond strength.1 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, use Consepsis after Peak SE Primer or Ultra-Etch 35% Phosphoric Acid and before Peak Universal Bond.
