ISO/TS 16506:2017 specifies test methods and information of bond strength to dentine and physical and chemical performances of dental polymer-based luting materials containing adhesive components. The materials are supplied in a form suitable for mechanical mixing or hand-mixing, including using auto-mixing tips, for self-curing and/or external energy activation, or non-mixing for external energy activation.
The polymer-based luting materials covered by this document are intended to be used for the cementation or fixation of restorations and appliances such as inlays, onlays, veneers, posts, crowns and bridges.
ISO/TS 16506:2017 does not cover the following polymer-based luting materials:
a) those which do not have an adhesive component within the structure of the material (see ISO 4049);
b) those intended for veneering sub-frames (see ISO 10477).
