Abstract:

An acrylate terpolymer was evaluated for effects of autoclaving and water immersion on bulk physical properties. In general, autoclaving of the material appeared to have little or no effect on physical properties. However, water immersion of the acrylate elastomer, both non-reinforced and reinforced, results in severe lowering of strength properties. Author
