Aim: To comparatively evaluate the properties of two BPA-free experimental adhesives (EXA, EXB) for lingual fixed retainer bonding versus a commercially available reference material (Transbond LR-TLR) based on BPA-compound. Materials and Methods: The experimental materials were a flowable 60 percent glass filler-filled UEDMA/TEGDMA flowable composite (EXB) and a 70 percent glass filler-filled paste composite with PCDMA/UEDMA/TEGDMA co-monomers. The properties tested were degree of conversion (DC %), mechanical properties (Martens hardness-MH, elastic modulus-EIT, elastic index-nIT), effect of prolonged (6 months) water storage (changes in Vickers microhardness-VHN) and pull-out strength employing a multi-stranded wire. Results: EXB showed the highest DC% (63.6%), followed by EXA (50.5%) and TRL (44.1%) with all means differences being statistically significant (P<0.05). The statistical rankings of MH (MPa) and EIT (GPa) means were TLR (76.1MPa; 17.3GPa)>EXA (53 MPa; 12.9 GPa)>EXB (12.9 MPa; 6.7 GPa), whereas for nIT, EXB (40%)>EXA (34.9%), TLR (33.6%). All materials were affected by prolonged water storage with significant differences among them in VHN. TLR was the most affected material (ΔVHN=-11%), followed by EXA (ΔVHN=-6.8%) and EXB (ΔVHN=-4.2%). No statistically significant differences were found in the pull-out strength testing (24-24.2 N range) and failure mode (70-77% mixed). Conclusion: Considering the differences between the two experimental materials, it may be concluded that the material containing the PCDMA/UEDMA/TEGDMA co-monomers may be used as an alternative to the control.
