Mechanical properties of new denture resins polymerized by visible light, heat, and microwave energy.

Abstract

Properties of seven newer resins polymerized using a water bath, microwave energy, or by visible light were measured. Generally, the new resins were harder and less flexible but had lower impact strength than did the heat-polymerized, rubber-modified resin (Lucitone). The light-activated urethane dimethacrylate resin (Triad) was the least flexible… (More)
