Red Dot
The dispensing system of the Scotchbond Universal Adhesive simplifies workflow in modern dentistry and leads to optimised results. The reduced form of the vial body with high-contrast colour variations culminates in the sweeping curves of the deep blue, extra-large locking lever. This enables intuitive, one-handed use of the product. Moreover, the swing lid features a bistable film hinge that locks into a stretched dispensing position when the lid is opened. This ensures an unhindered view of the vial tip for precise dosage during application. An audible clicking sound indicates the closing of the vial, thus protecting the adhesive.

Statement by the jury

»The ergonomically shaped dropper vial has been optimised for one-handed use. It enables the user to precisely determine the dispensed amount of the valuable liquid. «
