Abstract


The bonding quality of bonding to polyether ether ketone (PEEK) after different surface treatments and adhesive regimens was assessed through shear bond strength. Materials and Methods: Sixty modified PEEK disks were cut out of BioHPP round blanks using CAD-CAM procedures. Disks were subjected to the following surface pretreatments: (A) Sandblasting with alumina (Rocatec) and application of adhesive bonding agent visiolink (control group) (B) Sandblasting with silica-modified alumina (Cojet), application of silane agent Espe Sil, followed by application of adhesive bonding agent Visio-Bond (C) Sandblasting with silica-modified alumina (Cojet), application of silane containing primer-adhesive Clearfil Ceramic Primer, followed by application of adhesive bonding
agent visiolink. A dual-curing resin composite cement (combolign) was luted to all treated surfaces. Each group was further divided to subgroups of 10 specimens which were stored in distilled water at 37°C for 150 days without further thermocycling. Specimens were then submitted to shear bond strength testing. Results: Group (B) was statistically significant different from group (A) (control group). Water storage condition had no significant influence on final bond strength. Conclusions: Use of different conditioning protocols had a significant effect on the final bond strength of composite resin cement
to PEEK surface. Water storage did not significantly influence bonding.
