Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the shear bond strength (SBS) of the adhesive pre-coated II (APC II) adhesive coated appliance system with that of Transbond XT composite resin. Materials and Methods: A total of 40 sound premolars extracted for orthodontic reasons were randomly divided into two equal groups. Each tooth was mounted vertically in a self-cure acrylic block so that the crown was exposed. In both groups, the bonding procedure was performed according to the manufacturer's instructions. The SBS test was performed with a universal testing machine. Results: The SBS was found to be higher in the Transbond XT group than in the APC II group. Conclusion: Although SBS for APC II was found to be higher than that of Transbond XT, the APC II system has been proven to be efficient for clinical use.
