Paper Title:
Improvements of Stiffness and Strength of Bio-Resorbable Bone Nails by the MFC-Concept
  Abstract

In contrast to the classical composites, microfibrillar reinforced composites are not prepared via melt blending of the matrix and the reinforcing material. In fact, the reinforcing elements of this composite, the microfibrils, are created during processing. This advantage allows the manufacturing of a full biodegradable composite material with improved mechanical properties. Basing on a blend of two common biodegradable polymers, polylactide and polyglycolide, this new composite shows promising values under ambient conditions.
