Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Luting Cement
Superior bond, high strength and less waste
Superior Bond Strength
Light Tack Cure for Easy Removal of Excess Cement
Sustained Fluoride Release
Revolutionary ionglassTM Technology
Riva Cem Automix features SDI’s revolutionary ionglassTM technology. This unique blend of different sized reactive glass particles harnesses ion-release to cross-link polycarboxylic acid chains. This focused ion release gives Riva Cem Automix a clinically higher strength, superior bond and more stable aesthetic properties.
Riva Cem Automix is a self-curing, radiopaque, fluoride releasing paste/paste resin modified glass-ionomer luting cement. It is indicated for the permanent cementation of metal and ceramic restorations. The automix tip attachment offers convenience over traditional hand mixed cement systems.
SUPERIOR BOND STRENGTH
Reliable adhesion to tooth structure is important for long term retention of cement restorations. Riva Cem Automix shows excellent bond strength to enamel and dentine in an external study conducted over a 6 month period. (Fig 1)

HIGHEST FLEXURAL STRENGTH
A high flexural strength enhances the longevity of a cement restoration by better withstanding mastication forces.
Riva Cem Automix has high flexural strength which increases its durability in the oral environment. (Fig 2)

2. Riva Cem Automix showing ideal consistency after extrusion.
3. Seat the zirconia crown.
Excess cement removed easily by light tack cure.
4. Final restoration.
LESS CEMENT WASTE
Riva Cem Automix offers more tips than any other leading cement. Each supplied tip has less waste than other cements, providing you with more material for more patients. (Fig 3)
EASY REMOVAL OF EXCESS CEMENT
Riva Cem Automix has a light tack cure option for easy removal of excess cement. Simply light tack cure any excess material for 5 seconds with an LED curing light. Then gently remove excess material. Alternatively, excess material can be removed after the self curing phase (1 min 30 seconds).

THE BEST LONG TERM AESTHETICS
Colour changes within luting materials can clinically affect the aesthetic appearance of a prosthesis. It is important to choose a dental cement which has the least colour change over time. External tests have confirmed that after 6 months of water storage, Riva Cem Automix has the best in class colour stability.
