Abstract

Abstract The transverse strength test has been used to monitor the rate of strengthening of conventional and high-copper amalgams. Single composition high-copper amalgams develop higher early transverse strength than do admixed high-copper amalgams. Microscopic details of the fracture process in seven-day-old amalgams are also presented.
