Physical Properties of Fixed Prosthodontic, Resin Composite Luting Agents

White/Yu

Pages: 384-389
PMID: 8240650

This study determined and compared physical properties of six fixed prosthodontic resin composite luting agents and one control. Inorganic filler content, compressive strength, diametral tensile strength, film thickness, and Knoop hardness were determined. The amounts of filler and the physical properties varied widely among materials. One material, which contained a minimal amount of filler, underwent so much plastic deformation that its strengths could not be measured. All other materials demonstrated high strengths. The materials with the least filler demonstrated the least resistance to indentation. The material with the lowest film thickness had not set at the time of measurement, 10 minutes after mixing. Most materials had unacceptable film thicknesses. Only one material demonstrated acceptable physical properties throughout the study.
