Abstract

Having good mechanical strength, biocompatibility, and workability, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is often used as a biomaterial. In this study, PET filaments with various deniers are made into plied yarn with various coefficients of twist. The plied yarn is then made into PET knitted fabrics. Mechanical property tests are performed to determine the differences among the various PET knitted fabrics. Finally, by using cell culture, the PET knitted fabrics are analyzed and evaluated with their cell attachment.
