Just wondering if there is anything else to do with using Apex triad and bonding the Emax. Should I sandblast the Emax, interface, sim 2, light cure, sim 2 and dry?

I treat E Max like the regular Empress Cad.. I sandblast it per John...
Ivoclar says not to...
But use logic for a second.
Could it increase bonding?.....well yes.
Could it increase fracture????? We are talking E Max. Do you think a quick blast of sand to the interior is going to do ANYTHING to hurt E Max??? Hell no!!

No one can cite an instance in which sandblasting has caused anything to fracture.

I'm with Howard.
