This study investigated the cohesive bond strengths of glass-ionomer cement at three setting and etching intervals and compared these bonds to the shear strength of the material itself. Bonded cylinders were created and then sheared using the Instron Universal Testing Machine. Analysis of bond values of glass ionomer added to glass ionomer indicate bond variability and low cohesive bond strength of the material. Bond values of unbonded glass-ionomer material indicate that the material itself is stronger than bonds established between bonded samples.
