Ultra-Etch etchant 35% phosphoric acid solution features ideal viscosity, facilitates precise placement and superior control. It is self-limiting in its depth of etch (average depth of 1.9 µm with 15-second etch),1 creating an etch pattern that adhesives can penetrate for increased bond strength. Studies demonstrate Ultra-Etch etchant’s unique self-limiting chemistry on dentin creates an optimal surface to receive resin.Though Ultra-Etch etchant is viscous, it can penetrate into the occlusal fissures or vertical surfaces due to physical and chemical properties that promote capillary action. Its ideal viscosity maintains a layer that is thick enough to prevent premature drying.
Ultra-Etch etchant is indicated for use on dentin and enamel to create optimal bonding surfaces. Ultra-Etch etchant can be used for 5 seconds to remove the salts created by etching porcelain.
Self-limiting on dentin
Penetrates smallest fissures and won’t run on a vertical surface

Ultra-Etch etchant is a 35% phosphoric acid solution for use on dentin and enamel to create ideal bonding surfaces. Ultra-Etch etchant is self-limiting in its depth of etch, creating an etch pattern that adhesives can penetrate for increased bond strength and reduced sensitivity. Combined with an ideal viscosity that facilitates precise placement, this unique self-limiting chemistry results in an optimal surface to receive resin.
Ultra-Etch etchant is uniquely formulated with ideal viscosity. Though it is viscous, it can penetrate into the smallest fissures or occlusal surfaces due to physical and chemical properties that promote capillary action.
Yet, its ideal viscosity maintains a layer thick enough to prevent it from running on vertical surfaces or drying prematurely.
Ultra-Etch etchant is proven to be uniquely self-limiting in its depth of etch, with an average depth of 1.9 μm with 15-second etch.
In a study comparing etchants, liquid phosphoric acid (37%) showed an average depth of 5.0 μm at 20 seconds, and a competing “polymer-thickened” etchant showed an average depth of 4.8 μm.
Acids with this greater depth of etch go beyond the optimum level and increase the potential for incomplete resin impregnation.
Industry Leader for More Than 30 Years
Ultra-Etch etchant is perfect for any restoration in any part of the mouth.
It has been named a “Can’t Live Without” product, called “Tried & True,” and has been a Reality’s Choice 5-star award winner6 for years on end.
Ideal for Etching Dentin and EnamelClinical experience and FE-SEM evaluations show that 20 seconds etch time on both dentin and enamel provides optimal conditioning of both tissues. Air/water rinse. Blot excess water off, leaving surface visibly wet.
Self-Limiting ChemistryCreates Optimal Surface With an average depth of 1.9μm with a 15-second etch, Ultra-Etch etchant stops etching at the ideal depth
