This study determined the effect of polymerization shrinkage of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) coating of fiber roving on the transverse strength of an acrylic resin-glass fiber composite. The test specimens were heat-cured acrylic resin reinforced with glass fibers. The glass fiber rovings were treated with four PMMA-MMA mixtures (30 specimens per group) of various ratios assumed to have different amounts of polymerization shrinkage. A transverse strength test was used to determine the… CONTINUE READING
