UNLABELLED A widely used artificial aging methodology is thermo-cycling. The ISO TR 11450 standard (1994) recommends 500 cycles in water between 5 and 55 degrees C. Recent literature revealed that more cycles are needed to mimic long-term bonding effectiveness. Furthermore, the artificial aging effect induced by thermo-cycling is not clearly established. Two underlying mechanisms can be advanced: (1) hot water may accelerate hydrolysis and elution of interface components and (2) repetitive… CONTINUE READING
