The purpose of this paper is to present the different properties and the fractured surface of denture base resin using different process fabrication technique, it also aims to determine the suitablality denture material used in vacuum casting technique. Thirty rectangular specimens were fabricated by conventional denture fabrication for (Impact rapid repair material) heat cure in water bath polymerized and cold cure in autiopolymerized, then specimences were fabricated by using vacuum casting technique for cold cure resin (Vertex Castavaria) with condition of no degassing, degassing at 20 sec and 40 sec. The mechanical properties; impact strength, flexural strength and hardness of the fabricated samples were evaluated using Impact Charpy test, three point bending test and Vickers hardness test respecticely. The fractured surface were observed by using SEM. The results were analyzed by one way ANOVA with (α=0.05). It was found that the cold cure resin produced in vacuum casting process has a lower impact strenght as compared to autiopolymerized process. However, the flexural strength had increased and the porosity also deacreased when the degassing time condition increased. The finding shows that the cold cure resin (Vertex castavaria) had longer pouring time than other cold cure material. This makes the material is suitable for vacuum casting technique.
