|Title:||Development of a flexible composite material||Authors:||Ramakrishna, S.
|Issue Date:||1997||Citation:||Ramakrishna, S.,Tang, Z.G.,Teoh, S.H.,Tsai, K.T. (1997). Development of a flexible composite material. Advanced Composites Letters 6 (1) : 5-7. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Primary objective of this research work is to develop a flexible and biocompatible composite material by reinforcing polyurethane elastomer with knitted fabric of polyester fibers. A new composite fabrication method has been developed, as the conventional thermoplastic composite fabrication methods are not suitable for reinforcing a polymer of high melting temperature with fibers of low melting temperature. The flexible composite material displayed an elastic modulus of 22.3 MPa, tensile strength of 19.5 MPa and a failure strain of 141%.||Source Title:||Advanced Composites Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/58095||ISSN:||09636935|
