Abstract

See full text

Solutions of ultrahigh molecular weight polymers such as polyethylene in a relatively non-volatile solvent are extruded through an aperture at constant concentration through the aperture and cooled to form a first gel of indefinite length. The first gels are extracted with a volatile solvent to form a second gel and the second gel is dried to form a low porosity xerogel. The first gel, second gel or xerogel, or a combination, are stretched. Among the products obtainable are polyethylene fibers of greater than 30 or even 40 g/denier tenacity and of modulus greater than 1000 or even 1600 or 2000 g/denier.
