The Latest Technology From 3M That Will Simplify Your Inventory
This program highlights how 3M is taking universal adhesives and universal cements to the next level. The course will focus on how the category of current universal adhesives was created, and on new features of 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive. Results from the first in vivo field evaluation will be shared, which included over 300 doctors in the US and Europe. Also discussed is how the new universal cement addresses customer pain points with existing resin cements, simplifying the resin cement workflow.
