This refers to the speed of an amalgator in dentistry.
Explanation: 42-007. Beyli, M.S. and VonFraunhofer, J.A. Repair of fractured acrylic resin. J Prosthet Dent
Materials & Methods:
1.Rectangular bars were fabricated of heat cured resin using two trial packs. They were fractured in three point bending and the fracture behavior was recorded.
2.Gaps ranging from 1 to 5 mm. were prepared with butt joints between the fractured edges of the samples. These initial studies indicated that 3 mm. was a suitable gap and subsequent testing was done with gap widths of 3 mm.
3.Seven edge profiles were tested in three point bending after repair with self-curing resin. These profiles were: knife-edge, inverse knife-edge, rounded, lap, rabbet, inverse rabbet, ogee.
The use of rabbet(which is also spelt rabbit, as in joinery) was found at the following address: http://nnd40.med.navy.mil/navypros/literature/Section_42.htm
