  1. Within the same column, values with different superscript lower case letters are statistically significantly different (Tukey HSD, P < 0.05).
  2. *indicates significant reduction in bond strength of each group after 10,000 thermocycles (Paired T-test, where P < 0.05).
  3. Abbreviations: NC, negative control; SBU, Single Bond Universal; ABU, ALL-BOND Universal; PC, positive control.
