    The two that can do it all.

    3M™ RelyX™ Universal Resin Cement works both as a standalone, self-adhesive cement and as an adhesive cement when combined with 3M™ Scotchbond™ Universal Plus Adhesive.

    Together they eliminate the hassle and confusion of multiple resin cements, primers and adhesives, simplifying your direct and indirect restorative workflows. With fewer products to stock and replenish, you save space, time and money.
