Physicomechanical Properties And Application Of Man-Made Fibres


-- As a result of microscopic investigation of high-modulus viscose fibres, it has been found that the various types of defectiveness in them amounts to 90%.

-- Four characteristic groups of fibre defects have been determined: breakdown in morphological structure - 25%; gas-bubble content - 20%; mechanical contaminants from the viscose - 25%; and mechanical contaminants from the precipitation bath - 20%.

-- It has been shown that the presence of defects in the fibre reduces its strength characteristics from 7.7 to 33%, depending on the form of defect and increases nonuniformity in these figures.
