This study investigated the effect of addition of polyethylene fibers on the transverse strength, deflection, and elastic modulus of two denture base acrylic resins polymerized by microwave irradiation. Specimens of each resin, Lucitone 199 and Acron MC, were fabricated with 0.0%, 0.5%, 1.5%, and 3.0% fiber loading. Specimens were tested with use of a three-point flexure apparatus with an Instron universal testing machine after storage in water for 10 days at 37 degrees C. The results showed… CONTINUE READING
