Schaumburg, IL, March 12, 2015– BISCO Dental Products announces the release of UNI-ETCH® w/BAC and ETCH-37™ w/BAC in an economical 30ml bulk syringe system. UNI-ETCH® w/BAC and ETCH-37™ w/BAC are 32% and 37% semi-gel phosphoric acid etchants with BAC (Benzalkonium Chloride), an antimicrobial agent. They are ideal for etching tooth structure prior to bonding and specifically formulated to be easily applied to larger surface areas and rinsed cleanly with no residue.
Intended for use on enamel, dentin, and as a cleaning agent for restorative substrates, UNI-ETCH® w/BAC and ETCH-37™ w/BAC will effectively remove the smear layer, etch and demineralize enamel and dentin, producing the necessary microretentive surface for successful bonding. The thixotropic etchant rinses away cleanly and quickly, leaving no residue.
UNI-ETCH® w/BAC and ETCH-37™ w/BAC is also available in 5g syringes packaged in a quantity of four. To order or to find more information, please call BISCO’s Sales Professionals at 800-247-3368 or visit www.bisco.com.
*Note: The inclusion of benzalkonium chloride has not been shown to correlate with a reduction in secondary decay in patients. In-vivo clinical studies to evaluate the effects of benzalkonium chloride on oral bacteria or caries have not been performed.
