Ceramic Filled Polymer Matrix Composite Used For Bio-Medical Application


Synthetic polymers such as polyurethane are used widely in the field ofbiomedical applications such as implants or part of implant systems.This work focuses on the preparation of base polymer matrix compositematerials by (Hand Lay-Up) method ,and studying the effect of selected weightfractions (3 , 6 , 9 , 12 ,15) % wt of Calcium oxide (CaO) , Calcium carbonate(CaCO3), Magnesium oxide (MgO) ,and Magnesium carbonate (MgCO3) particleson some properties of the prepared composite.Some mechanical tests were used to evaluate the prepared system (Tensile,Compression, Impact, and Hardness) tests, and a physical test of (Waterabsorption %), and all tests were accomplished at room temperature.maximum results of tensile strength, compression strength, impact energy,hardness, water absorption were ( (31 MPa),( 51 MPa),( o.265 J), (79.8 Shor (D)),(0.229 %)) at using ( (9% wt (MgCO3)) , ( 9% wt of (MgCO3)) , ( 9% wt of(CaCO3)) , ( 15% wt of (MgO)) , ( 15% wt of (MgCO3)) respectively
