Abstract

The utility of poly(fluoroalkoxy)phosphazine elastomer (PNF-200, Firestone) as a permanent soft denture liner has previously been demonstrated. In an attempt to optimize the physical parameters of PNF elastomer formulations, the effects of methyl methacrylate (MMA) and butyl methacrylate (BMA) monomer concentration on hardness, tensile strength, elongation, tensile stress at 100% elongation (100% modulus), peel strength, and water sorption were investigated. Incorporation of methacrylates has been used in the past to improve the bonding to poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) baseplates of removable dentures.
