In this current study, two types of dental composites materials are tested on the basis of wear rate. The specimens were prepared in plastic and cured using LED light torch. They were weighed on Precision Digital Balance machine (LWL Germany Make Model: LB 210S, Least count of 0.0001gm). Then they were mounted on Two Body Wear Tester (Pin on Disc machine) for testing of wear rate. The variables considered for the research work were load, speed and sliding distance. Various combinations of these variables were made. Pre-experimentation was also carried to find out the most influencing values of these variables. The variables were so chosen that they would represent actual conditions under which the dental composites were supposed to work. The results were put into Minitab 17 software for further analysis. It was found that 3M Z350 shows more resistance to wear rate than Filtek Z250.
