Strength parameters greatly influence the selection of luting agents. This study compared the compressive and diametral tensile strengths of six classes of new adhesive luting agents (ALAs) with zinc phosphate as the controls. The 11 materials tested were prepared according to the manufacturers' instructions for use as luting agents. Mean compressive and diametral strengths and standard errors were calculated for each luting agent (n = 10). Analysis of variance was computed (p < 0.0011) and… CONTINUE READING
