Further, acid-base reaction enhances the leaching of fluoride ions to form a polysalt matrix, and resin-modified glass ionomer cements, such as Clinpro XT, revealed a more controlled and sustained release of remineralization agents over a 6-week time period.
Particle reinforced polymeric composites, also known as GPACs, which contain degraded residual glass containing a silicious layer that reinforce the polysalt matrix for improved mechanical properties, have also been studied for fluoride releasing capabilities, but these studies have been performed on commercial products10 only and thus there is room for studying the inherent fluoride releasing phenomenon.
It was suggested that the solid polysalt improves the mechanical properties of the vulcanizates (refs.
