Aim: To establish an effective combination of drying time and drying method of the tray adhesive so that maximum bond strength can be achieved between impression tray and impression material.
Materials and methods: Cylindrical specimens of auto-polymerizing resin and addition silicone impression material were made. A total of 150 specimens were tested. They were divided into two groups Dentsply and GC. Each group was further divided into five subgroups:
The samples were tested for tensile bond strength using the universal testing machine. The results were subjected to statistical analysis.
Result: Open air drying as recommended by the manufacturer was better than drying with a blower or compressed air. There was no significant difference between open-air drying for 5 minutes and open-air drying for 15 minutes or 1 hour.
Conclusion: Open air drying as recommended by the manufacturer, i.e. 5min, showed good bond strength and drying for more than 5mins does not significantly increase bond strength.
Clinical significance: Tray adhesive should not be dried with compressed air or air blower. Tray adhesive should be applied and kept to dry according to the manufacturer’s recommended time.
