Muscles in a beef carcass demonstrate differences in biochemistry and composition [6-9], and muscle source is a major intrinsic factor influencing beef color stability [6].
If this modification results in a low color stability, the durability of the temporary restoration can be compromised, whereas modification in the surface roughness can result in plaque accumulation at levels that are not clinically acceptable.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of anti-washout gel on the color stability of MTA Plus and NeoMTA Plus in contact with different irrigation solutions.
The hydrolyzates were refined to study their sugar profile, glucose yield, protein content and color stability.
The combination of a spectrophotometer with a fluorimeter opens up completely new perspectives to control color quality and guaranteed color stability. Features include a 10-year warranty on LED light source, and 45[degrees]c:0[degrees] measuring geometry plus 60[degrees] gloss measurement.
A new line of high-clarity, high-heat, injection moldable PC copolymers reportedly offers a unique balance of heat resistance, high flow, and excellent color stability under extreme molding conditions, together with a high refractive index (RI of over 1.6) and high transparency (greater than 89% in the visible and infrared spectra at thickness of 1 mm).
Due to their solvency power, low pour points, low odor and good color stability, these oils can be used in a wide variety of products and applications, including tire oils, rubber compounding, adhesives, defoamers and more, according to the company.
The unique and highly durable topcoat gives the highest color stability and gloss retention of any special effect finish currently available.
Additionally, although many studies have evaluated the effects of lots of drinks and pediatric medicines with regard to erosion, caries, and/or color stability of teeth/dental materials [5, 7, 9, 10, 13-22, 24], according to our knowledge, the effects of pediatric drugs on the color stability of restorative materials have not been mentioned.
Furthermore, light curing systems influence the degree of conversion which in turn affects color stability of composites.
The color stability of composite materials used in restorative dentistry is crucial, both after the material is completely cured and throughout the restoration's lifetime.
