    Author(s): Hiba A Salman*, Manhal A Majeed and Eaman A Al-Rubaee

    This in-vitro study aimed to evaluate the compatibility of both conventional gingival retraction pastes based on Aluminium chloride (AlCl3), and novel gingival retraction pastes based on herbal astringent (Boswellia papyrifera (Bp) with and without AlCl3) with polyvinyl siloxane impression material by measuring the setting time polymerization index. The test of the Compatibility with Light body type III polyvinylsiloxane impression material (Variotime light body type III, KULZER, Germany) was carried out by measuring the standard-setting time of polyvinylsiloxane impression material to obtain ultimate compatibility time polymerization index (100%) for the control group and compared it with the compatibility time polymerization index of the impression after mixing with the studied gingival retraction pastes at oral temperature (35 ±0.1) ?, rotational speed 0.5 rpm, and spindle s..
