Recent studies have demonstrated that the polymerization kinetics of dual resin cements are more complex from what they used to think. Since this problem is already known, the proposition of this project is to evaluate some resin cements with different polymerization modes and their respectively mechanical properties, such as microtensile and microhardeness.
