The Effect of Custom Tray Material Type and Adhesive Drying Time on the Tensile Bond Strength of an Impression Material/Adhesive System


PMID: 8003192

The purpose of this investigation was to compare the tensile bond strength of one poly(vinyl siloxane) impression material/adhesive system to three different custom tray materials 10 minutes, 48 hours, and 7 days after adhesive application. One autopolymerizing (Fastray) and two light-polymerizing (Triad and Extoral) custom tray resins were examined. The Triad tray resin exhibited the significantly highest mean adhesive tensile bond strengths, and the Fastray resin exhibited the lowest. It was also observed that the 48-hour adhesive drying time group exhibited the highest mean adhesive tensile bond strengths for all the materials tested, and the 10-minute group exhibited the lowest.
