Creating the best restorative material to substitute amalgam has been one of the most important challenges for the dental materials industry since the last decade, especially when the banning of mercury-based products became more widespread. The system of EQUIA is to combines a high-viscosity GIC (EQUIA Fil) with a highly filled light curing resin coating (EQUIA Coat). This technology integrates the main advantages of the high-viscosity GIC (self-adhesion, bulk application, improved mechanical properties) with a protective barrier in the early maturation phase and an improved surface hardness. When EQUIA Fil is coated with EQUIA Coat (EQUIA System) a marked increase in fracture toughness, flexural strength and flexural fatigue resistance are observed.
