Kuraray entered the field of dental materials in 1973. The mission of Kuraray is to respond precisely and thoroughly to the needs of the dental profession with reliable products of superior quality. In 1978, Kuraray released the world’s first dentin bonding agent, CLEARFIL Bond System F, which marked the birth of adhesive dentistry. At the same time the total-etch technique on dentin and enamel was invented by Kuraray. Forty years later, Kuraray continues to bring forth innovative quality products to meet the demands of a continuously changing profession.
