Surpass® Instructions: Bonding to Existing Composite

Protocol for Bonding to Existing Composite

  1. Roughen the composite surface to be bonded.  Ideal the surface should be micro-etched with 27 micron aluminum oxide powder.  If micro-etching is not available the surface should be roughened with a burr.
  2. Rinse and dry the surface.
  3. Dispense a drop of Surpass®2 into a cavity of the mixing well. Using the proper color-coded brush apply two brushfuls of Surpass®2 to the metal surface.
  4. Dry the primed surface with dried compressed air for at least 10 seconds with the air syringe tip as close as possible to the surface. DRY Surpass®2 THOROUGHLY
  5. Dispense a drop of Surpass®3 into another cavity of the mixing well. Using the proper color-coded brush apply a thin layer of Surpass®3 to the entire cavity surface.
  6. Light-activate for 10 seconds. Surpass® can be activated with any dental activation light.
  7. Continue restorative procedure with material of choice. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for all restorative materials.
