Abstract

The physical properties of end-use synthetic fibres depend on their microstructure, which in turn depends on the structure of the as-spun fibres being used and the drawing conditions. In this paper, the structure of as-spun polypropylene (pp) fibres, obtained under systematic experimental design using orthogonal arrays, is studied with wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS), as a function of processing parameters and interactions among such parameters. The WAXS results are quantified and analysed systematically using statistical methods.
