Transverse bend strength tests and water sorption and solubility tests were done to compare the properties of highly cross-linked autopolymerizing reline resin with those of conventional non-cross-linked autopolymerizing reline resine. The relationship between composition and properties of autopolymerizing reline resins was also investigated. Highly cross-linked reline resins and the one that contained mainly poly(methyl methacrylate) and methyl methacrylate had a higher transverse bend strength and modulus of elasticity than the other reline resins (p<0.01). The highly cross-linked reline resins also had significantly lower water sorption than the other reline resins (p<0.01). Reline resins, except for one, had significantly higher solubility than heat-polymerizing denture base acrylic resins (p<0.01).
