Abstract: Monomer losses for two self-curing acrylic cements were similar via laboratory serial weighing experiments. Both the P/L ratio and mixing duration substantially influenced subsequent monomer losses, but ambient temperature variation during mixing had little effect. Greater losses were encountered during the mixing and setting intervals than during the molding interval. Patient potential exposure to monomer occurs during the molding and setting intervals; therefore, handling procedures reducing losses in these …
