Graft polystyrene has been synthesized on polypropylene fibers. The isometric heating curves of the grafted fibers have two maxima. The first is associated with the preserved oriented polypropylene structures, the second with the oriented structures formed directly in the process of polystyrene synthesis. The maximum stress corresponding to the latter maximum is proportional to the amount of polystyrene and the degree of orientation of the starting polypropylene and depends on the mechanical stress in the fiber during the process of polystyrene synthesis.
