Abstract: Purpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate a newly developed polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) powder. Methods: The particle size distribution, surface area, and particle shape of both new and traditional powders were compared. The shear bond strength of the resin cement with the new powder to a silver-palladium-copper-gold alloy was determined and compared to that for a cement with the traditional powder. Also, the weight of mixture held by the brush at one time of both powders was also calculated and compared as an index of mixability. Results: The surface area of the new powder was smaller than that of the traditional powder, while the particles size distributions were similar. The new powder included various-sized spherical particles as well as irregular particles, while the traditional powder consisted of only irregular particles. The new powder showed significantly higher mixability, although its bond strength was not significantly different from that of traditional powder. Conclusion: The results of this study show that the interminglement of spherical and irregular particles cannot influence the bond strength to the alloy but is helpful to improve the working properties.
