Automotive manufacturers in particular are currently showing great interest in CAS material solutions with low residual monomer content.
Sometimes wrought wires are also added to stabilize and retain ill-fitting dentures with the support of adjacent teeth.8 These self-cure dentures have very high amount of residual monomer which leads to severe irritation, cytotoxic, allergic and inflammatory reactions.
In addition to aqueous polyurethane dispersions and blocked crosslinking agents, the Lanxess toolbox includes a wide range of prepolymers with low residual monomer content
These stages differ in the different degree of swelling of the polymer matrix, different ductility, fluidity, tackiness, and residual monomer content.
However, it is possible to have residual monomer leakage from these resins even after setting is completed.
The product has a very low residual monomer content (< 200 ppm) and does not need organic solvents or coalescing agents to achieve optimum film formation.
The other bands appearing in 3000-2800 [cm.sup.-1], 1490-1275 [cm.sup.-1], and 900-750 [cm.sup.-1] spectral regions correspond to different C[H.sub.3] and C[H.sub.2] vibrational modes [38], During the polymerization reaction of the acrylic resin, uncured monomer, called residual monomer, remains [39-44].
There might be slow leaching of residual monomer into the storage solutions, causing an increase in the hardness of acrylic resins.
(24) The residual monomer content can be detected by GC analysis with n-tetradecane as the internal standard.
Many products containing acrylamide are now being manufactured with the intent of reducing residual monomer content.
In fact the burning sensation may result from the intra-oral manipulation of resin or because of the presence of residual monomer. Consequently, this may elicit either an allergic response or cause direct irritation of the mucosa by the monomer or by the heat generated during its curing in the mouth [42].
