Abstract

The aim of conducted research was to produce polylactide based nonwoven fabrics using melt-blown technology, having one-way shape memory effect triggered by temperature near human body temperature. In the current studies, thermal, morphological and shape memory properties of fabrics made from two polylactide based polymer blends with addition of atactic, low molecular weight polyhydroxybutyrate are compared. Thermally induced shape memory effect was evaluated in the thermomechanical experiments where the temperature and time of transition were measured.
