Super Etch 37% phosphoric acid etchant for etching enamel and dentin. The Super Etch syringe facilitates controlled direct extrusion for faster procedures and easier access into difficult to reach areas. SDI’s inorganic filler particles wash away without leaving a residue. Super Etch 37% wt phosphoric acid etchant for enamel and dentin Easily controlled Super Etch gel fl ows under direction, not under gravity.
37% wt phosphoric acid
30 to 40% wt phosphoric acid optimally etches in 15 to 20 seconds (1). Lower concentrations require longer contact time, unnecessarily delaying procedures.
Selective enamel etching
Super Etch’s high viscosity and easy to control fl ow allows precise placement. It is perfect for selective enamel etching procedures
Blue tint gel
High visibility for precise selective placement.
Super Etch non-slump gel offers precise selective placement. Agitate the gel to lower its viscosity.
Super Etch creates micropores in the enamel surface and removes the smear layer to unblock dentinal tubules. It promotes adhesive resin penetration and resin tag formation. Super Etch is vital for the restoration’s mechanical retention.
Dye free Etchant
A clear dye free 37% liquid etchant is also available for patients who suffer dye allergies.
Super Etch syringes
Super Etch offers an easy to use, leak free syringe. Direct extrusion facilitates faster procedures, economical dispensing and easier access into diffi cult to reach areas.
Super Etch Low Viscosity (LV)
LV is specialized for sealants with a half gel / half liquid formulation. Super Etch LV’s high fl owability achieves greater acid surface contact for deeper etchant penetration into pits and fi ssures. The deeper acid penetration strengthens the mechanical bond and the retention success of the sealant. Ideal for SDI’s Conseal f and all other sealants.

Isolate tooth. Prepare cavity. Clean the surface to be etched using a non-fluoridated, oil-free prophylaxis paste, or a pumice and water slurry.
Rinse thoroughly with water.
1. Acid etching. Thoroughly dry the surface to be etched with dry, oilfree air.
CAUTION: ensure that the dispensing tip hub is firmly attached to the syringe by twisting the tip hub securely onto the syringe. The Super Etch tip may be bent to any desired angle. Place the tip against the surface to be coated and slowly apply the gel.
Note: on first usage, or after prolonged storage, extrude a small amount onto a mixing pad for familiarity with the etchant’s viscosity and rate of extrusion. Etch enamel for at least 30 seconds. Etch exposed dentin and glass ionomer liner for 20 seconds.
2. Rinse well with water for 5-10 seconds.
3. Remove excess water
4. Apply bonding agent, such as Stae, or pit and fissure sealant, such as Conseal f, according to manufacturer’s instructions.
