Inter-preparation distances were measured on the stone dies and compared with the master model.
The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the dimensional accuracy of putty-wash and monophase polyvinyl siloxane impression materials by measuring the linear changes in the inter-preparation dimension on recovered stone dies and also to deter-mine the effect of delayed pours at varying periods of time.
Table 6 shows the percentage deviation of mean inter-preparation distance (measured on stone dies) between Monophase tech-nique for both groups from the master model relative to the time of pouring.
