Enhancing Thermal, Viscoelastic, and Mechanical Properties of Silicone Rubber Matrix through Reinforcements for Use as a Medical Implant

Received: 14 December 2023;  Published: 03 May 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2402011


The use of silicone rubber as an implant is limited due to its weak properties. In this study, the impact of various reinforcements, such as TiO2 or SiO2 nanoparticles, carbon, or polypropylene fiber micro reinforcements, on the mechanical, thermal, and viscoelastic properties of silicone rubber [...]

Development of Low Elastic Modulus Titanium Alloys as Implant Biomaterials

Received: 20 March 2022;  Published: 21 April 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202008


Biomaterials have always been the focus of material scientists and engineers. Titanium and its alloys have favorable properties, such as high strength, low density, good corrosion resistance, non-toxicity, low elastic modulus, biocompatibility, etc. Thus, Ti alloys have received much attention from scientists and engineers who work with biomat [...]
