Radzi, Z. and Abu Kasim, N.H. and Yahya, NA and Gan, SN (2007) Impact strength of an experimental polyurethane-based polymer. Annal Dent Univ Malaya, 14. pp. 46-51.
The impact strength of a newly developed experimental polyurethane-based polymer which is derived from palm oil (Experimental PU) was compared with denture polymers; heat-cured and self cured polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and EclipseÂ?, light-activated urethane dimethacrylate prosthetic resin system. Ten specimens were prepared using heat-cured PMMA (MeliodentÂ? Heat Cure, Heraeus Kulzer, Germany), self cured PMMA (MeliodentÂ? Rapid Repair, Heraeus Kulzer, Germany), EclipseÂ? baseplate resin (Dentsply, USA) and Experimental PU material. Specimens were prepared following manufacturerâ??s instructions except for the Experimental PU material where it was prepared in bulk and sectioned to the desired dimension, 64 x 6 x 4 mm. A â??Vâ?? notch of approximately 0.8mm in depth was machine cut across the 6mm width. Prior to the Charpy type impact test, specimens were soaked in a water bath for 50 hours at 37Â?C. EclipseÂ? baseplate resin showed the highest impact strength (2.73 kJ/m2Â±0.54) followed by MeliodentÂ? Rapid Repair (2.50kJ/m2Â±0.65), MeliodentÂ? Heat Cure (1.96kJ/m2Â±0.42) and Experimental PU (1.04kJ/m2Â±0.29). One-way ANOVA showed significant interaction between materials (p<.05) and Tukey HSD revealed that Experimental PU exhibited significantly lower impact strength compared to other materials. MeliodentÂ? Rapid Repair was not significantly different from MeliodentÂ? Heat Cure and EclipseÂ? baseplate resin. It can be concluded that the Experimental PU exhibited the lowest impact strength while EclipseÂ? baseplate resin the highest.
