Abstract

A new, experimental glass ionomer cement has been introduced in capsule form to shorten mixing time and eliminate wasted adhesive. GC Fuji Band Capsule is the encapsulated version of GC Fuji Band, a glass ionomer for­mulated for cementing orthodontic bands and devices retained with stainless steel crowns or cast splints, such as Herbst or expansion appli­ances. Besides the favorable characteristics of conventional glass ionomers, such as fluoride release and the ability to bond to wet enamel, another advantage of this new product is its pink color.
