Cylinders of nano- filled composite were bonded in two subgroups onto buccal enamel of all teeth using AdperTM Single Bond 2 (ASB) and Adper Prompt L-Pop (ALP) adhesive systems (n= 20 each).
The thermal conductivity of composite increased slightly from 0.287 W/mK for untreated GF filled composite to 0.308 W/mK for D-GF filled composite.
Although nano silver particles might be useful as an antibacterial agent incorporated into dental composites, this metal influences the color of the esthetic restorative materials and reduces water contact angles of the heavily filled composite resins.
To avoid diluting the filled composite resin, blot off the excess unfilled bonding adhesive with a lint-free gauze or a patient bib.
Higher amount of nano-Si[O.sub.2] fillers also means a more severe aggregation of the fillers, thereby hindering the friction-reducing behavior of the filled composite coating, due to the abrasion action of the filler aggregates [2, 30, 31].
There is no structural order in such a filled composite, the most important aim being the uniform distribution of particles in matrix.
Similar to the results of the impact strength, the highest tensile strength was observed in the 2.5 wt% NCC filled composite. However, as the NCC contents increased, the tensile strength decreased; this is probably because when stress was applied during the tensile test, voids were formed around the NCC particles in the composite, which had an unfavorable effect on the strength of the composite, thereby resulting in a decrease in the tensile strength.
Within the limitation of this study we can conclude that the weak acids present in different beverages consumed daily have a great effect on the hardness and surface roughness or degradation of the nano- filled composite material.
The polymer chains for lower filled composite are more free to move without any restriction by the application of external pressure.
Session 1 on compound modifications will include the following presentations: "A new intelligent viscosity reduction concept--better processability without sacrifice in dynamic properties," Karl Meriting, Schill & Seilacher, Germany; "Low temperature curing with a cure system consisting of ZMBT or MBT, a dithiocarbamate, a cure activator and sulfur," Rabin Datta, Flexsys BV, Belgium; "Rubcon--technology of high filled composite materials," Oleg Figovsky, Israel Research Center Polymate; and "New optimized system for the lead-free crosslinking of epichlorohydrin (ECO) elastomer," Hans Martin Issel, RheinChemie GmbH, Germany.
Kundu and Lee [19] studied the effect of calcite/zeolite hybrid fillers on PP composites and found that the composite filled with calcite/zeolite hybrid fillers exhibited slightly higher Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength than those of calcite filled composite, while the impact strength was lower.
While, in Zr[B.sub.2]/CE resin composites, friction stress mainly concentrates on Zr[B.sub.2] particles and CE resin matrix is protected from friction damage, which further proves the transformation of wear mechanism from adhesive wear of pure CE to abrasive wear of filled composites.
