By Kevin J. Bigham, PhD., Zeus

Drawn fiber is an improved performance monofilament based on extrusion technology and found in a wide array of applications such as over-braiding for hoses, weaves as mist eliminators, medical braiding, instrument and racquet string, and strengthening for industrial belting applications. This white paper discusses drawn fiber and polymer properties with particular emphasis on the macro- level attributes including melting temperature, glass transition temperature, and several key mechanical traits. Download the full paper for more on these fiber-based products and how they can be used to suit specific application parameters.
