Peak™ Universal Bond
Simple Delivery to Superior Bonding
Highest Bond Strengths to Both Dentin and EnamelA 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.
Ideal for All Bonding ProceduresThe 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.
Less SensitivityBecause bonding success begins with a quality etch, both Peak® SE Primer and Ultra-Etch® are formulated to create an optimally prepared surface for bonding-resin penetration. When Peak Universal Bond is applied to the prepared surface, the result is unsurpassed bond strength and complete resin impregnation without voids, which reduces the possibility of residual patient sensitivity.
Saves Time and MoneyBecause Peak 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 StrengthsPeak’s unique formulation contains a 0.2% concentration of chlorhexidine, which may ensure long-term bond strengths.5–8
Two Delivery OptionsPeak Universal Bond 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.
Peak Universal Bond Step by Step
– See Instructions for Use for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.
A. Total-Etch: Etch for 20 seconds with Ultra-Etch, then suction, rinse for 5 seconds, and dry
B. Self-Etch: Scrub Peak SE Primer into preparation for 20 seconds and air thin
Place 1–2 drops of Peak Universal Bond into well
Dip applicator brush into well
Use applicator brush to apply Peak Universal Bond, scrubbing for 10 seconds
Air dry with half pressure for 10 seconds
Light cure with VALO® for 10 seconds in standard mode
NOTE: If using syringe, affix Inspiral® Brush tip. Test expression before applying. Follow steps 4–6.

I’ve been a PQ1 user for a long time. Why would I want to switch to Peak Universal Bond?
Peak Universal Bond is the result of years of research and development, and there are a lot of advantages Peak Universal Bond offers. For example, Peak Universal Bond is only 7.5% filled where PQ1™ is 40% filled, yet Peak Universal Bond offers higher bond strengths than PQ1 (71.3 MPa vs. 62.8 MPa, respectively). Also, Peak Universal Bond works with both self-etch and total-etch techniques while PQ1 only works with the total-etch technique. Finally, Peak Universal Bond includes chlorhexidine (0.2%), which may ensure long-term bond strengths.5–8 PQ1 does not.
What substrates does Peak Universal Bond adhere to?
Like its name implies, Peak Universal Bond 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® in conjunction with Peak Universal Bond?
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 is placed.
