Abstract

Abstract High strength/high modulus tapes and filaments were prepared directly from virgin ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene powders, by low temperature compression moulding and subsequent tensile drawing. We report in detail on the effects of various polymerization and compression moulding variables on the drawability of virgin UHMW polyethylene powders.
