The ‘STAY PUT’ Etch

  • Selective etching – you can just etch the enamel
  • Thixotropic and non-stringy
  • Bright Blue – easily identifiable and contrasting
  • Contains the anti-microbial BAC Benzalkonium Chloride that leaves a barrier against bacteria

Eliminates run-on onto the dentin surface, ideal for etching enamel margins.


Can Select HV Etch be used for every etching technique?
Yes! Select HV Etch can be used for total-, self- and selective-etch techniques.


How long should I etch or clean my restorations with Select HV Etch?
Dentin and enamel, or enamel only, should be etched for 15 seconds.
If using phosphoric acid as a cleaning agent on dental restorative materials: 30 seconds.


How does the “blue” colour of Select HV Etch make etching easier?
Select HV Etch’s electric blue colour allows for easy identification and contrast.


What is BAC and what benefits does it provide?
Benzalkonium chloride (BAC) is an antimicrobial agent. Research confirms the development of residual bacterial inhibition zones of up to 7mm, against Strep mutans, and Actinomyces Viscosus .1,2
