Abstract

Abstract A heat-cured resin based on a copolymer of bis-phenol-A glycidyl methacrylate (bis-GMA) and tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate (THFM) was investigated. Workable pastes were made by adding 90 10 w/w bis-GMA/THFM copolymer powder to a 70 30 w/w monomer of the same composition. The organic filler content was 60–64% w/w. Young's modulus, flexural strength, impact strength, hardness, water absorption and desorption, linear thermal expansion, polymerization shrinkage and glass transition temperature were determined. The materials studied showed high elastic modulus, hardness and glass transition temperature. A relatively low linear thermal expansion was obtained but poor impact strength and low flexural strength, indicating brittleness. Acceptable values were obtained for water absorption.
