From: Influence of solvent evaporation on ultimate tensile strength of contemporary dental adhesives

Group Adhesive 1 h 7 days S/NS
Original Clearfil SE Protect 0.8 ± 0.4B,a 6.7 ± 0.3A,a S
OptiBond XTR 0.7 ± 0.7B,a −1.4 ± 1.5B,b S
OptiBond All-In-One NA* NA*
G-Premio Bond NA* NA*
Desiccated Clearfil SE Protect 0.9 ± 0.3B,a 5.9 ± 0.3B,a S
OptiBond XTR 1.0 ± 0.3AB,a 3.0 ± 1.0C,a S
OptiBond All-In-One 2.2 ± 0.6A 8.1 ± 0.7A S
G-Premio Bond − 0.6 ± 0.2C − 8.1 ± 2.1D S
  1. Data are the mean ± S.D., %; n = 10
  2. Same capital superscript letters indicate that ultimate tensile strength values were not significantly different among each group in the same water storage period (p > 0.05)
  3. Same small superscript letters indicate that ultimate tensile strength values were not significantly different among each adhesive in the same water storage period (p > 0.05)
  4. S, detection of the significant difference between 1 h and 7 days (p > 0.05); NS, not detection of the significant difference between 1 h and 7 days (p > 0.05); NA, not applicable because adhesive could not be hardened even after sufficient light exposure
