The aim of this study was to evaluate the bond strength of different direct reliners to acrylic resin for denture base.
Materials and methods
Double-cone specimens were made: HA-heat-cured acrylic resin-(n = 20); U-Ufi Gel Hard C-(n = 10); K: Kooliner-(n = 10); R-Rebase II Fast-(n = 10) and RH-Rebase II Fast + Resin Hardener-(n = 10). Ten HA samples were immediately submitted to cohesive test. The remaining HA samples and others were submitted to thermal aging (HAaged, 1000 cycles, 5.55oC), followed by tensile test. For tensile strength, 50 single cone-shaped samples were made of heat-cured acrylic resin and aged (HAaged, 1000 cycles, 5.55oC). After surface treatment, relining resin cones were build up using silicon molds, and stressed to failure. Values of cohesive and tensile strength were submitted to one-way ANOVA and Tukey's test (α = 5%).
Bond strength were: HA/HAaged: 21.17 (Â±4.89)a, U/HAaged: 11.56 (Â±1.98)b, R/HAaged: 9.69 (Â±2.37)b, RH/ HAaged: 9.38 (Â±1.78)bc and K/HAaged: 5.98 (Â±1.90)c. The cohesive strength were: KCoe: 22.29(Â±4.06)a; RCoe: 23.99 (Â±3.29)a; RHCoe: 24.84 (Â±3.88)a; UCoe: 25.62 (Â±3.03)a; HAaged: 36.06 (Â±8.65)b and HA:42.29 (Â±7.68)b. Groups followed by the same letters do not show differences.
Bond strength of acrylic resin to acrylic denture base material is higher than the reliners and Ufi Gel Hard C showed the higher bond strength.
