The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of an etchant in titanium bonding. The aqueous etchant consisted of 0, 5, or 10 wt% ammonium hydrogen fluoride (AHF) in combination with 0, 0.03, 0.3, or 3 wt% cupric chloride (CC). The two primers used were a phosphate-methacrylate primer and a thiophosphate-methacrylate primer, and two self-curing resins (Super-Bond C&B and MT) were employed as luting agents. Disk specimens were cast with a commercially pure titanium. The surface was… CONTINUE READING
