The effect of a plasma-treated polyethylene fiber on the fracture strength of polymethyl methacrylate was evaluated in this study. Sixteen treated and 16 untreated polymethyl methacrylate bars were tested by use of a three-point compression loading apparatus. Under the conditions of this experiment the treated bars showed a mean fracture strength of 12.56 MPa compared with 9.81 MPa for the untreated samples. In addition to the increased fracture strength, the treated bars also demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
