Fluorides represent the basic component of glass powder and if it is to be efficiently extracted by the polyacid it has to be in crystalline form as fluorite [5].
Tamol Dispersants from Dow offer formulators a diverse selection of polyacid, hydrophilic copolymer, and hydrophobic copolymer dispersants to meet a variety of formulation demands.
Combining glycerine (a byproduct from processing vegetable or animal fats) with an organic polyacid like citric acid can make bio-derived polyesters.
Antibacterial activity of glassionomer restorative cements and polyacid modified composite resin against cariogenic bacteria.
The first is the electrostatic effect ascribed to the nature of polyelectrolyte, the complexing equilibrium is influenced by both the degree of dissociation of polyacid and the concentration of added salt.
The conventional glass ionomer cement is usually supplied as a powder and a Polyacid liquid.
In the present study, the majority of the modifications decrease the VHN; this result could be related to the modification of the liquid powder proportion of the materials when adding the antibacterial agents, since it is reported that microhardness can be affected by the ratio of glass particles to polyacid. In the current literature, there is no information about the surface roughness or hardness of the control materials.

In line with previous studies suggesting that GICs' microhardness may be affected by the ratio of glass particles to polyacid [32], the findings of the current investigation suggest that, indeed, it may be a critical aspect to guide one's decision on the nanofiller concentration for the best microhardness outcomes.
