The article presents a study, which tests the effect of heat, when used as a secondary cure on the physical properties of composite resins like hardness, wear and color stability. Two light cured composite resins, P-30 and Occlusin and a hybrid light cured composite resin Profile TLC were tested with and without application of heat after initial light cure of the composite resin materials. The surface hardness of the composite resin samples was obtained utilizing the Rockwell 45T scale on an Officine hardness tester.
