With a view to understanding the structure-property relation of a silicone-based soft lining denture material after polymerization, its chemical composition and viscoelastic properties were investigated. Chemical compositions of the cured and uncured polymers of a commercial silicone permanent soft liner were determined by infrared spectroscopic analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) method was used to investigate the viscoelastic behavior of the cured polymer of liner.
