3M™ Ketac™ Universal Aplicap™ Glass Ionomer Restorative gives dentists a solution with fewer steps, easy handling and reduced chair time, so they can get patients on their way fast with a fluoride-releasing restoration that is strong enough for long-term use.

The restorative is self-adhesive and self-curing, so it eliminates the need for conditioning, coating or light-curing steps, enabling an efficient procedure--just place, sculpt and you’re done. The material’s low stickiness reportedly adds to its easy handling, and it can now be used for restricted stress-bearing Class I and II restorations, thanks to its compressive strength and surface hardness.
