The wear characteristics and wear mechanisms of dental composite resins were investigated. Composite resins such as Metalii, Silux Plus, Heliomolar and Palfique Estelite were selected as specimens and contents of filler in specimens in order to analyze the effect of Prepolymerized Particle Fillers in friction and wear characteristics. Ball on flat wear tester was used for a wear test. Friction and wear tests are carried out at room temperature. The friction coefficient of Metafil was quite high relatively, and the wear resistance of Silux Plus and Palfique Estelite was better than that of Metafil and Hellomolar at the same experimental condition. The main wear mechanism is plastic flow and abrasive wear by crack propagation.
