Aim: To evaluate the effect of incorporation of 2-tert-butylaminoethyl methacrylate (TBAEMA) on the flexural strength and impact strength of a heat-polymerized acrylic resin. Materials and methods: A total number of 240 specimens were fabricated, 120 each for flexural strength and impact strength. Further, four groups were divided according to the concentration of TBAEMA incorporated to the acrylic resin (DPI): 0%, 0.5%, 1% and 2%. Flexural strength and impact strength of the specimens was tested and results were analyzed by ANOVA and Tukey\'s test (p value ≤ 0.05). Results: Significant difference was found for both flexural strength and impact strength (p value ≤ 0.05). Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, it was concluded that the flexural strength and impact strength gets altered, depending on the concentration of TBAEMA.
