Ultradent™ PermaFlo™ flowable composite is light-cured, radiopaque, methacrylate-based, and available in eight shades. Its thixotropic properties impart ideal flowability for improved adaptation. PermaFlo composite is 68% filled by weight, with an average particle size of 0.7μm and a low film thickness.
- High-fill, high-flow formula
- Highly radiopaque
- Fluoride-releasing formulation
- Eight shades
- Superior polishability
- Strong and wear-resistant
Indications for Use
Use PermaFlo flowable composite for anterior and posterior restorations: Class I, II, III, IV, and V. It can also be used to restore missing subgingival tooth structure prior to endodontic procedures (the “Donut Technique”). It is highly recommended for Class III and V restorations, or for the lower layers when using incremental building of composites.
– See Instructions for Use in Resources section for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.
Small Class I preparation treated with dentin bonding agent. Fill restoration with flowable PermaFlo composite through the Micro 20ga tip.
The flowable composite offers unsurpassed adaptation as it fills from preparation floor up.
Finished radiopaque, 07μm hybrid restoration. Ultimate restorative seal!
Masking dark colours initially facilitates gorgeous esthetics at the surface.
Place a thin layer of PermaFlo flowable composite Dentin Opaquer over the exposed metal and light cure for 10 seconds with VALO™ curing light. For curing lights with output 600 mW/cm2, cure 20 seconds.
Superadaptive Initial Layer
After the bonding agent, apply a thin layer of PermaFlo flowable composite at the gingival margin, proximal box axial margins, and internal line angles to ensure quality adaptation of composite.
Thickness and Strength
PermaFlo flowable composite exhibits very low film thickness.
PermaFlo composite performs favourably with other flowable composites. Being 68% filled, PermaFlo composite provides very high compressive strength.

High-Fill, High-Flow Formula
PermaFlo flowable composite’s high fill and high flow give you the best of both worlds. It’s 68% filled for high strength. But it’s also highly flowable, making it ideal for metal masking, micro restorations, or as a super-adaptive initial layer beneath composite restorations. Its all-out flow makes it easy to place during restorations, while its maximum fill ensures it stays extra strong.
PermaFlo flowable composite shades offer superior polishability, and afford excellent translucency for matching, blending, and depth of cure.
“The Donut Technique”
Use PermaFlo flowable composite for the “Donut Technique” to achieve extension of root when retention of clamp would otherwise be difficult or impossible.
The flowable composite is highly radiopaque, so you’ll never have to wonder if what you’re seeing is dental material and not tooth structure or caries.
PermaFlo flowable composite is gluten-free, so it fits in with the lifestyles of patients from any background.
PermaFlo allows us to restore in so many different situations. The material seems to 'flex' better in those difficult Class V restorations, which serves us and our patients more successfully.
Dr. Pat Prendergast – Englewood, CO
I literally use PermaFlo on every patient. I love the shades and the way it flows and handles. I use it around my posts, prior to core buildups. The stuff is awesome!
Dr. Ian E. Modestow – Florence, MA
The opaque PermaFlo shade is a terrific tool for difficult esthetic restorations. It allows me to mask metal when repairing a PFM crown and eliminates the grey hue. I am able to cover dark stains and restore the tooth to its natural beautiful shade.

Q: How flowable is PermaFlo composite?
A: PermaFlo composite is considered to be more flowable than others in its category. A test of light-cured flowable composites shows that even with one of the highest fill rates in its class, PermaFlo composite flows better than any other composite on the market.1
