Rocatec™ Universal Bonding System
The Rocatec™ Universal Bonding System, from 3M ESPE, provides everything you need to achieve an ideal surface preparation — and excellent bond strength.
A recent study has shown that surfaces prepared with Rocatec demonstrate improved bond adhesion.¹
Rocatec’s patented formula delivers both a mechanical and chemical bond. The Rocatec system conditions the surface by fusing a unique silica layer onto the surface of a coping or restoration, creating an ideal surface for enhanced bond strength.
Summary of advantages
Patented formula creates an ideal surface for optimal bonding
Ideal for ceramics, composites, all porcelain fused-to-metals, alumina and zirconia
Allows bonding to normally non-retentive surfaces
Provides excellent bond strength without marginal gap
