For samples modified by the silane coupling agent, higher average values of bond strengths than those without the modification throughout the entire exposure timeline are evident for the 0-, 4-, and 12-week exposure although the difference at 12 weeks is less than one standard deviation and thus may not be significant.
However pre-curing the adhesives before the CR produced greater bond strengths to dentine of permanent teeth [Chapman et al.
A holding device was used to evaluate the shear bond strengths.
The analysis of this design supplies two points of information: First, that the 8560S has slightly weaker bonds after salt spray exposure than the other two adhesives; and second, that the "dry" compound has higher post-exposure bond strengths than the "wet" compound when they are applied over the phosphatize-plus-MetalJacket surface treatment, but that relationship is reversed if the surface treatment is grit blasting plus primer.
Laboratory testing of mechanical retention indicates that adhesive-to-bracket bond strengths are less than those of equivalent-size foil/mesh metal brackets.
