[5] Componeer system developed by Coltene, Switzerland, consists of thin pre-polymerized hybrid composite shells, several shades of direct hybrid composite resin, an etch and rinse adhesive system, and restorative accessories including finishing points and disks.
Due to the application of high performance epoxy polymer as matrix with carbon fiber and filler as reinforcement the resulting hybrid composite exhibits higher mechanical properties and lower specific wear rate with low coefficient of friction compared to unfilled carbon fabric-reinforced epoxy composites.
The hybrid composite HDPE/20% [Al.sub.2][O.sub.3]/10% Ti[O.sub.2] was scanned using SEM (scanning electron microscopy) to get an image of the distribution of the reinforcing particles before the test and the fracture type after the tensile test.
Then the rest of the cavity was filled with a hybrid composite, Filtek Z-250 (3M-ESPE, Germany) with a horizontal layering technique.
To show the matrix/fiber adhesion and hybrid composite morphology, polarized optical microscopy (POM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) investigations were used.
However, the strength of the hybrid composite was slightly larger than that of the particle-free composite at 623 K [10].
