Use of 2-isocyanatoethyl methacrylate and iron (II) perchlorate for bonding tri-n-butylborane-initiated luting agents to dentin.


PMID 9708692

Abstract

The present study investigated the effect of 2-isocyanatoethyl methacrylate (IEM) and iron (II) perchlorate on dentin adhesion. Four primers were evaluated, consisting of aqueous 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) solutions containing 5, 10, 20 or 50 micromol/g iron (II) perchlorate. Five luting agents were prepared with methyl methacrylate (MMA), poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), tri-n-butylborane (TBB) initiator and IEM. The concentrations of IEM in the luting agents were 0.2, 0.4, 0.8, 2.0 and 4.0 wt%. Extracted bovine teeth were ground to expose the dentin, etched with an aqueous solution of 10 wt% phosphoric acid, primed, and then bonded with stainless-steel rods; tensile bond strengths were determined after 1 d immersion in water. The highest bond strength (20.7 MPa) was recorded for the group using 10 micromol/g iron (II) perchlorate and 2.0 wt% IEM. The use of IEM was effective in decreasing the optimal concentration of iron (II) perchlorate, and this may contribute to the color stability of iron-containing pretreatment agents.
