    Assessment of Some Properties of Heat Activated Denture Base Resin Reinforced with Strontium Titanate Nano Powder
    Author(s): Wisam Ahmed Shihab* and Mohammed Moudhaffer Mohammed Ali

    Introduction: In the current research, evaluation of some properties of heat cured acrylic resin were carried out after adding different concentration of strontium titanate (SrTiO3) nano powder (1% and 1.5% wt.). Statement of the problem: Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is the most often utilized material for dentures manufacturing. Insufficient thermal conductivity, poor surface hardness, increase in roughness values and reduced some mechanical qualities make this material far from optimal in terms of justifying mechanical requirements. Aim of the study: The goal of this research was to investigate the effects of adding SrTiO3 (NPs) nanoparticles in proportion of 1% wt. and 1.5% wt. on some physical and mechanical properties of heat cured denture base material.
