Purpose: This study was undertaken to characterize the long-term equilibrium flexural strength at proportional limit (FSp) of 4 denture reline polymers processed onto 4 denture base polymers. Materials and Methods: A 3-point flexural test was applied on rectangular specimens of each denture base polymer–denture reline polymer. Each specimen was immersed in water for 4 months prior to and 4 months after reline. Results: Significant differences existed among the relined specimens because of the denture base polymer variable, the denture reline polymer variable, and their interaction (P < 0.05). The descending order in FSp according to the denture base polymer, arranged in terms of statistical significance was: Acron ~ Acron MC > Triad > Palapress Vario, where ~ denotes no significant difference between Acron and Acron MC. The descending order in FSp according to the denture reline polymer, arranged in terms of statistical significance was: Triad > Rebaron > Rebaron LC > Tokuso Rebase. Significant difference existed among all of the denture reline polymers. Conclusion: The present study showed that the long-term equilibrium strengths of 4 denture reline polymers processed onto 4 denture base polymers were different. The strength of the relined specimen of a denture base is dependent on the strength of the denture base polymer and that of the reline polymer.
