A simple and economical tensile test for measuring bond strength has been developed and utilized to compare the adherence of four composite resins. Specimen preparation is convenient, and conditioning treatments can be performed easily. Statistical analysis of the data obtained indicates that the test is useful for comparative adhesion studies.
