Abstract

A process is described for the successful compaction of polyethylene terephthalate fibres. The measurement of mechanical properties shows that a very high proportion of the original fibre properties are retained and that the compacted samples have a good degree of coherence. Electron microscopy studies of suitably etched samples reveals the effect of the compaction temperature on the structure of the compacted samples.
