Abstract: This study investigated the effects of thermal cycling on wear of four commercial composite resins (Silux, Z100, Ariston and Surefil). Specimens of each material were divided into three treatment groups comprising a control and two different thermal cycling regimes. Control specimens were stored in distilled water at 35 degrees C for 178 hours. Thermal cycled specimens were stored in distilled water at 35 degrees C for 173 hours and subjected to five hours (300 cycles) of a thermal cycling regime consisting of the cycle ABAC, where A and B represent the fixed temperatures of 35 degrees C (28 seconds) and 15 degrees C (two seconds) and C, depending on the treatment group, was either 45 degrees C or 60 degrees C (two seconds). All specimens were subsequently subjected to wear testing at 20 MPa contact stress against SS304 counterbodies with distilled water as the lubricant. Wear depth (microm; n=6) was measured using profilometry every 2,000 cycles up to 10,000 cycles. Results were analyzed using ANOVA/Scheffe's test (p<0.05). The effect of thermal cycling on wear was material-dependent. The wear of Silux and Z100 were not significantly affected by thermal cycling. Thermal cycling of Ariston at an upper temperature of 60 degrees C significantly decreased wear resistance. Thermal cycling affected only the early wear resistance of Surefil.
