Table 6 Incidence of failure types (%) after flexural bond strength test

From: The effect of a bonding agent and thermo-mechanical cycling on the bond strength of a glass-ceramic to gold and cobalt-chromium alloys

Experimental groups (n = 64) Failure types
Adhesive Mixed
G1–Gold/Bonding agent 12.5 (2) 87.5 (14)
G2–Gold/ No bonding agent 25 (4) 75 (12)
G3–Co-Cr/Bonding agent 6.25 (1) 93.75 (15)
G4–Co-Cr /No bonding agent 25 (4) 75 (12)
  1. *Adhesive–along the interfacial region between the opaque ceramic and the metal; Mixed–mixture of adhesive failure between the opaque ceramic and the metal with cohesive fracture of the ceramic.
