The effect of fibre reinforcement at the interface between silicone and acrylic polymers was investigated. Treatments that enhance bonding of silicone to acrylic substructures for intra-oral dental and obturator prostheses were established. Bond strengths were studied following aggressive thermo-cycling procedures. All acrylic interfaces tested had a clinically acceptable range of bond strength with silicone. The net-fibre reinforcement of the acrylic interfaces enhanced the bonding to silicone, increasing clinical serviceability.
