Curing characteristics of a composite - part 1: cure depth relationship to conversion, hardness and radiant exposure.


OBJECTIVE As the first part of a larger study on curing characteristics of a resin-based composite (RBC), the major objectives were to create an energy-hardness relationship (EHR) that relates Knoop hardness (KHN) with radiant exposure (H), and to do the same for degree of conversion (DC) in the form of an energy-conversion relationship (ECR). Both of these… (More)
