Evaluating of mechanical properties of (silicone/arabic gum/fish hask) composites used as pressure garment prosthetics

Noor Hadi Aysa


The mechanical properties of the silicone/ Arabic gum(oliban)/fish hask composites sheets as pressure garment for burn dressing material products were evaluated under compressive, tear resistance, and tensile loading conditions. Against a skin-like material, a silicone/ Arabic gum(oliban)/fish husk composites garments had the highest antibacterial properties that isolate the injured skin from the outside polluted environment to prevent infection besides that it help to improve the skin appearance by management the scar growth. It spread the pressure above the large area of skin which include healthy and injured that is will make injured skin to grow as same as normal neighbouring area
