Effects of Thermal Aging on Molar Mass of Ultra-High Molar Mass Polyethylene Fibers

March 24, 2022
Author(s)
Zois Tsinas, Sara Orski, Viviana Bentley, Lorelis Gonzalez-Lopez, Mohamad Al-Sheikhly, Amanda L. Forster
Ultra-high molar mass polyethylene (UHMMPE) is commonly used for ballistic-resistant body armor applications due to the superior strength of the fibers fabricated from this material combined with its low density. However, polymeric materials are

September 1, 2018
Author(s)
Amanda L. Forster, Viviana Rodriguez Cardenas, Ajay Krishnamurthy, Amy E. Engelbrecht-Wiggans, Zois Tsinas
The primary goal of the manuscript is to develop a protocol to prepare consistent specimens for accurate mechanical testing of high strength copolymer aramid fibers, by removing a coating and disentangling the individual fiber strands without introducing
