Abstract

Previous studies have shown that high impact strength can be conferred on denture-base poly(methyl methacrylate) polymers by modification with acrylic-terminated butadiene-styrene block copolymers, and that the acrylic end-group was necessary for effective reinforcement. It is now shown that, by solvent extraction studies, grafting of the copolymer occurs both with acrylic-terminated and non-terminated block copolymers. It is therefore concluded that the mode of grafting is different, and some possible mechanisms are discussed.
