Summary Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the shrinkage, contraction stress, tensile modulus, and the flow factor of 17 commercially available dental resin composites. Method The volumetric shrinkage measurements were performed by mercury dilatometry, and the contraction stress and tensile modulus were determined by means of stress–strain analysis. The statistical analysis was conducted by ANOVA and Tukey's post hoc test, and linear regression. Results Strong linear correlation for most resin composites were found for (i) contraction stress and shrinkage (ii) contraction stress and tensile modulus, and (iii) shrinkage and tensile modules. For most ...
