Glass Hybrid Technology

EQUIA® was first launched in 2007, and numerous clinical studies have demonstrated its clinical efficacy in Class I and II restorations* ever since. In 2014, GC’s new glass hybrid technology caused further considerable improvements, leading to the development of EQUIA Forte®. This restorative system combined a self-cure, bulk fill restorative, EQUIA Forte® Fil, laminated with a nano-filled, self-adhesive resin coat, EQUIA Forte® Coat. The new glass hybrid innovation was achieved through introduction of ultra-fine highly reactive glass and highmolecular weight polyacrylic acid powders within conventional glass which ensures advanced mechanical properties with improved flow and non-sticky handling. The nano-filled, self-adhesive resin, EQUIA Forte® Coat, ensures optimized marginal seal and wear resistance.

Taking glass hybrid to the next level

The strength and handling are further improved in EQUIA Forte® HT by developing an intelligent control of distribution and interaction of these glass particles. Also, EQUIA Forte® Coat is now available in an ergonomic flip-top bottle that minimizes waste. The result? A stron​g restorative with prolonged working time and superb handling that is excellent for bulk-fill placement, even in loadbearing Class II restorations.*
