Abstract : The purpose of this work is to provide a synthesis and study of elastomers, then to fabricate and characterize elastomer-fiber reinforcement composites used for making flexible and absorbent structures. To obtain castable elastomer matrices whose vitreous transition temperature may vary from -80 deg C to 110 deg C and exhibiting good adhesion with the fiber we turned to the polyurethane family. jg p9
