This study investigated whether glass fibre-reinforced composite (FRC) specimens can benefit from post-curing using electron beam irradiation. Twenty-four frameworks of the Vectris and 24 of the Stick glass fibre-reinforced system were veneered with their correspondent veneer materials. Eight specimens of both systems were post-cured using electron beam irradiation (3 x 33 kGy, 10 MeV). The specimens were fixed in a restrained-end apparatus and inserted in an artificial mouth.
