|Title:||Mechanical and physical properties of silorane and methacrylate-based composites|
de Aguiar, FHB
|Abstract:||Objectives: This study measured the degree of conversion (DC), sorption, solubility and microhardness of methacrylate (Filtek Z250 and Filtek Z350XT) and silorane-based composites (Filtek P90). Methods: DC was measured using near infrared spectroscopy immediately and 24 h after the photoactivation. Sorption and solubility measurements were performed after 24 h, 4 weeks and 12 weeks of storage in water. Knoop microhardness was measured after 24 h and after thermal cycling. The data were statistically analyzed using ANOVA followed by Tukey's, Tamhane or paired t-tests (alpha = 0.05). Results: The DC for P90 (37.22 +/- 1.46) was significantly lower than the Z250 (71.44 +/- 1.66) and Z350 (71.76 +/- 2.84). Water sorption was highest in the Z250 and lowest in the P90. All the tested composites exhibited similar values after 24 h of immersion, and no significant differences were observed. No significant differences were observed between the solubilities of the P90 composite (12 weeks) and the Z250 or Z350 composites (4 weeks). KHN values were less elevated for the P90 composite and similar for the Z250 and Z350 composites. An effect of thermal cycling on KHN values was observed for all the composites (p < 0.001). Conclusions: Silorane produced the lowest DC and KHN values and exhibited lower water sorption and solubility compared to methacrylate- based composites. These differences suggest that silorane composites exhibit better hydrolytic stability after 3 months of water immersion compared to conventional methacrylate-based composites. Clinical significance: Silorane had higher hydrolytic stability after 3 months of water immersion than the methacrylate-based resins, despite the lower values of DC and KHN recorded.
