Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/00 - 11/30/01

The long-term objectives of this research is to develop improved permanent soft denture lining materials suitable for clinical applications. In Phase I, the physical properties of the new materials were studied as functions of material formulations. Hardness, elongation, tensile strength, tear strength, bonding strength to denture base polymers,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/97 - 07/31/99

This research aims to develop improved maxillofacial prosthetic materials based on a unique methacrylic siloxane polymer. In Phase I, the formulations of the maxillofacial prosthetic materials were studied as functions of cure temperature, initiator concentration, filler concentration, and the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 06/01/97 - 12/31/97

The aim of this research is to develop improved permanent soft denture lining materials based on new methacrylic siloxane resins. The backbone polymer polysiloxane provides the silicone elastomer characteristics. The methacrylate groups located on the polymer chains provide the crosslinking and copoly...

Topic:
Budget: 09/01/96 - 08/31/97

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/94 - 02/28/95

This research proposes to develop an improved maxillofacial prosthetic material based on a new organosilicon polymer and monomer. The siloxane polymer possesses reactive end groups and will undergo thermal- crosslinking with a siloxane monomer which possesses similar end groups. The indentation hardness, tensile strength, percent elongation, th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

This research aims to develop improved composite dental restorative materials. In phase I, high molecular weight siloxane monomers were used to prepare visible light-activated composites, and the composites were evaluated according to ADA specification No.27. Hardness, diametral tensile strength, and water sorption of the composites were deter...

Phase 2 SBIR

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/90 - 01/31/91

This research proposes to develop improved composite dental restorative materials based on organosilicon polymers. By proper selection of organosilicon monomers and optimization of composite formulation, the monomers are expected to enhance the bonding between the-filler and the polymer matrix and minimize the chemical degradation and water sorp...
