The hypothesis tested were that (1) CHX treatment would result in higher bond strengths compared to groups without CHX treatment; and (2) increased storage times would present higher degradations in microtensile bond strengths.
5% antibiotics produced bond strengths similar to those of the control GICs and do not change the properties of GICs, but a significant reduction in bond strength was observed for GICs containing 3% and 4.
Though the literature indicates good but inconsistent results with the use of flowable composite liners and RMGIC liners under the composite restorations, very few studies have presented the comparative analysis of the bond strengths of flowable composite liners with the RMGIC liners.
A similar study that simulated aging of composite resin repairs with thermocycling reported decreased bond strengths among aged repaired composites that received different surface treatments.

Our work with soy flour has shown that dry and wet adhesive bond strengths for samples made and tested using this ABES method were remarkably insensitive to the type of soy flour used (Frihart and Satori 2012) or to the addition of chaotropic agents, salts, surfactants, and co-solvents to the soy flour (Frihart and Lorenz 2013).

When the bond strengths of the exposed specimens for three groups, which varied with different surface conditions, are compared with each other, it is shown that the average value of the bond strength was higher for the exposed specimens modified by the epoxy-functional silane.
