What is the pH of Surpass? From my understanding, a bonding agent with a lower pH can inhibit the bond of a self cured material. Am I right in this understanding?
I've heard that self etching materials are typically lower in pH. And from my understanding John classifies Surpass as self etch (even though it seems like it should be considered a total etch)

There are some bond strength issues with self-cure/dual-cure resins, but, according to JK, it's not a concern with Surpass.

As for the pH issue, at the time the self-cure resin is applied, the bonding agent is polymerized and is no longer a solution. Can a solid polymer have a pH? Is it the pH of the oxygen-inhibited layer that matters?

Surpass 1 has a pH of 0.6. Surpass 3 is neutral. Surpass 2 neutralizes Surpass 1.

Surpass works just great with self-cure
