Abstract
While fibers with very high strength have been achieved using aramid polymers and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, and these fibers have found great use in ballistic and other applications, their penetration into other applications has been limited due to the high cost associated with their manufacture. This proposal is directed toward using commodity materials and a novel processing technique to make high strength fibers with a tenacity of 20 g/d or more.
