Fibre Applications

The driving force for important fibre
developments, especially in past two decades
has been the ever increasing applications for
fibrous material in non –conventional sectors
such as protective clothing medical devices
and health care products, automotive
components, building material, geotextiles,
agricultural devices, sport and leisurewear,
filter media, environmental protection. These
applications put strong demands on good
performance properties such as strength/
modulus, durability and dimensional stability
and on functions such as flame – retardance,
hydrophilicity, hydrophobicity,
biocompatibility etc. The paper discusses fibre
requirement for diverse range of technical
applications and relates the fibre properties
with end use requirements.
