Abstract

Recently, Polymer matrix composites are attractive material in medical application due to its various attractive properties. It includes light weight to high strength ratio, ease of processing both complex and simple shape This paper describes on reinforcement of alumina and titanium oxide with bio polymer matrix composite using polyamide (Nylon).

The samples were manufactured by injection moulding machine with varying the percentage of reinforcing particles. Also various tests namely, tensile, flexural, impact, hardness, wear, SEM and corrosion were conducted on the prepared samples. Samples were fabricated as per ASTM standard. Injection moulding process is a defect free casting process. From the results concluded that, Polymer matrix composites of Nylon, Titanium Dioxide and Alumina composition will be a suitable biomaterial. Result shows that, 70% Nylon +10% Titanium Dioxide +20% Alumina polymer matrix composite is suitable an implantable biomaterial.
