Universal Primer is for clinicians who prefer an adhesive/primer that does not need to be light-cured, fearing that the indirect restoration may not fit due to adhesive layer thickness.
Universal Primer does not need to be light-cured for post cementation or under crowns, onlays, inlays, etc. and can be used in direct restorative procedures, such as core build-ups and composites. Universal Primer combines ease of use with virtually no post-operative sensitivity, and it is compatible with other cementation systems.

Frequently Asked Questions
Universal Primer is a dual-cured primer/adhesive designed for clinicians who prefer not to light-cure the adhesive layer under indirect restorations.
Yes, Universal Primer can be used with all cements available on the market.
Universal Primer is ideal for post cementation due to its dual-cureablity and compatibility with light-, self-, and dual-cured composite and cement materials. All-Bond Universal may be used with posts that offer light transmission.
All restorations should be prepared following the laboratory or manufacturer’s instructions.
Zirconia, metal and composite restorations should be primed with BISCO’s Z-Prime Plus.
Glass ceramics, including lithium disilicate (e.g. IPS e.max) and feldspathic should be primed with BISCO’s Porcelain Primer or Bis-Silane.
Universal Primer is a 2-part, dual-cure system that can be used in total-etch, self-etch or selective-etch technique. It is recommended for the clinician who prefers to not light-cure under indirect restorations. All-Bond 3 is also a 2-part dual cure system but can only be used in total-etch mode. You may use All-Bond 3 Resin with either of the two adhesives for radiopacity to outline the restoration and reduce the risk of misdiagnosing caries.
Both All-Bond Universal and Universal Primer have the same film thickness (<5µm).
