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%. © 1998 Trans Tech Publications.
