Share Abstract:

Properties of resin-modified glass-ionomer restorative materials and polyacid-modified resin-composite materials


Pages: 203-210
PMID: 9063235

The objective of the study was to evaluate the physical properties of four resin-modified glass-ionomer cements (Fuji II LC, Ionosit Fil, Vitremer, Photac-Fil) and two polyacid-modified resin composite materials (Dyract and Variglass VLC). They were compared with a hybrid resin composite (blend-a-lux) and a chemically cured glass-ionomer cement (ChemFil Superior). The compressive strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, and surface micro-hardness of the resin-modified glass-ionomer materials and the polyacid-modified resin-composite materials were inferior to those of the hybrid resin composite and similar to those of the conventional glass-ionomer cement. The hybrid resin composite exhibited the lowest resistance to wear caused by brushing. Some of the materials showed a marked decrease in hardness at depths exceedign 2.0 mm. Generally, the strength properties of the tested resin-modified glass-ionomer materials and the polyacid-modified resin composite materials were inferior to those of the hybrid resin composite.
