The aim of this study was to coat bioactive glass 13-93 fibres with biomedical polymers. Two methods were used to coat the fibres, namely, dipping and pulling through a viscous solution. With both methods the fibres were successfully coated. Dipping was preferred for thin fibres (20–50 μm) and with this method approximately 2–5 μm thin polymer coat was obtained on the fibre surface. Pulling through viscous solution was preferred for thicker fibres (150–250 μm) and with this method approximately 10–30 μm polymeric coat was obtained. Coating the fibres enables further processing of the bioactive glass fibres and improves the mechanical properties and processibility of fibres.
