Cyclic Fatigue Testing – Average Time to Failure in Seconds
- EdgeTaper Encore™
- ProTaper Next®
Cyclical fatigue test was performed using a custom test system with each file rotated at 500 RPM while 3mm of the file tip was inserted in a test block with a 90° curvature. Time to failure (seconds) was measured for each instrument.
