The effects of long-term storage on the mechanical properties of the components of resin-dentin bonds were analyzed. Specimens of resin composite (Z250) and adhesive systems were cast in molds. Dentin specimens were prepared from dentin discs obtained from the crowns of extracted human molars. The results show that both true stress (TS) and elasticity (E) of the resin-based materials decreased significantly after 12 months of storage in water (p<0.05), except the TS of SB (p>0.05).
