37% wt phosphoric acid

30 to 40% wt phosphoric acid optimally etches in 15 to 20 seconds(1). Lower concentrations require longer contact time, unnecessarily delaying procedures.

No interference with adhesive

Super Etch inorganic silica gel thickener is no obstacle to the adhesive. Other etchants block adhesives with a wax-like polymer residue which can inhibit penetration and bonding.

Thixotropic gel

Super Etch non-slump gel offers precise placement. Agitate the gel to lower its viscosity.

Blue tint gel

High visibility for precise placement.

Super Etch

Super Etch creates micropores in the enamel surface and removes the smear layer to unblock dentinal tubules. It promotes adhesive resin penetration and resin tag formation. Super Etch is vital for the restoration’s mechanical retention.

Super Etch Low Viscosity (LV)

LV is specialized for sealants with a half gel / half liquid formulation. Super Etch LV’s high flowability achieves greater acid surface contact for deeper etchant penetration into pits and fissures. The deeper acid penetration strengthens the mechanical bond and the retention success of the sealant. Ideal for SDI’s Conseal f and all other sealants.

Super Etch syringes

Super Etch offers an easy to use, leak free syringe. Direct extrusion facilitates faster procedures, economical dispensing and easier access into difficult to reach areas.

Super Etch syringe tips

Super Etch LV tips – 27 gauge pre-bent for minute pit and fissure crevasses. Super Etch tips – 23 gauge straight tips.

Regular viscosity Super Etch

1. Clean and isolate tooth.

2. Etch tooth surface with Super Etch 37% phosphoric acid for 20 seconds.

3. Wash thoroughly with water.

4. Remove excess water. Keep moist.

5. Apply Zipbond (SDI Limited) adhesive to saturate all internal surfaces, or bonding agent, according to manufacturer’s instruction.

6. Blow gently with dry, oil free air for 2 seconds to evaporate solvent. Leave surface glossy.

7. Light cure for 10 seconds.

8.1. Place Aura Easyflow, Wave / Wave MV / Wave HV fluoride releasing flowable composite or

8.2. Place Aura, Aura Easy, Aura Bulk Fill or Luna composite

9. Light cure for 20 seconds in increments of 2mm

10. Polish and finish

For pit and fissure sealants

Low viscosity Super Etch LV

1. Clean and isolate tooth.

2. Etch tooth surface with Super Etch LV for at least 30 seconds, no more than 60 seconds

3. Wash thoroughly with water.

4. Completely dry tooth. Note: a dry field is essential for the following steps.

5. Directly inject or brush apply Conseal f pit and fissure sealant.

6. Light cure Conseal f for 20 seconds.

CAUTION: Ensure the dispensing tip hub is firmly attached to the Super Etch,  Aura Easyflow, Wave or Conseal f syringe by twisting the hub securely onto the syringe.
