Introducing the first radiopaque universal adhesive.
Nearly a decade ago, 3M introduced the first truly universal adhesive. Since then, 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive has been clinically proven and has become the industry’s most researched universal adhesive.
Now, the next evolution is here: 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive offers all the benefits of its predecessor with new levels of control and predictability.
Radiolucency under an existing restoration can lead to misdiagnosis – and potentially invasive overtreatment. Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is the first universal adhesive with dentine-like radiopacity, helping to overcome this issue.

Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive gives you confidence when performing minimally invasive preparations because it has the same high bond strength to caries-affected dentine as to sound dentine.
In addition to the excellent quality of restoration margins, it seals caries-affected dentine by forming a well-defined, void-free hybrid layer. Because “the seal is the deal” to prevent secondary decay.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive keeps the popular benefits of the clinically-proven original formulation, with some new enhancements you’ll love.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is suitable for all direct and indirect bonding procedures and all etching techniques. It can also serve as a universal primer for all restoration materials.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive provides gold standard adhesion to all dental and restorative substrates, including glass ceramics.
Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive is a true one-bottle system, with no need for a separate primer or silane. Plus, it offers full dual and self-cure compatibility without a separate dual-cure activator.
A unit dose allows efficient hygiene management to reduce the risk of cross contamination. Our popular flip-top vial has also been streamlined, and now features smoother surfaces, making it easy to wipe off excess.
99% of dentists reported that Scotchbond Universal Plus Adhesive shows virtually no post-operative sensitivity,* just like its predecessor.
