PQ1 is a single-syringe, light-cure bonding agent. It is 40-percent filled, fluoride-releasing, and radiopaque. PQ1 is applied in the same manner as conventional enamel-bonding resin for wetting composite when required between incremental layers or when sculpting and contouring. Unlike other systems, PQ1 utilizes a unique, patented chemistry. It contains a tissue-kind primer and bond resin using ethyl alcohol as the solvent carrier that is gentler on soft tissue than acetone.
PQ1 has an extended shelf life of 24 months. Included in the PQ1 introductory kit are two 1.2ml prefilled PQ1 syringes, two 1.2ml prefilled Ultra-Etch® 35% syringes, 20 Blue Micro® tips, and 40 Inspiral® Brush tips.
