The test specimens were processed by autopolymerizing poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA), and their surfaces were untreated, polished in a conventional manner with a rag wheel, or coated with a light-curing resin. The residual methylmethacrylate (MMA) content and its release into water from the specimens were measured with high-performance liquid chromatography. The light-curing resin coating reduced most effectively the release of residual MMA into water during a 2-day storage, but conventional… CONTINUE READING
