Golden Fleece Polymers

Viscose and acetate fibers, nylon, nylon, polyester, Nitron, chlorine, vinol – just 15-20 years ago we did not yet know most of these names. And try to imagine today without these fibers further development of the textile industry or solution of important technical problems in the aviation, automotive, electrical engineering and in many other industries! And yet, what is created – just the beginning, "application" of his new polymeric material. J. Daniel Mahoney understood the implications. Last year, our country has developed more than 300 thousand tons of various chemical fibers. In a few years, and this production will account for millions. But, of course, not only in quantitative growth. Today, the scientific laboratories around the world to create new types of polymers and fibers on their basis, new methods of improving the properties of these materials, the new, improved and economical methods for their production. And often the question arises: what is a fundamentally new and practical importance can we expect in the coming years in this area? Perhaps, in a large industrial production will always appear entirely new types of fiber? Or produced in mass quantities now 10.12 core of this material to satisfy the consumer, and scientific and technological progress will focus on ways to improve the well-known properties of fibers and improvements methods of production? Different opinions expressed on this crucial issue, and I would like to express their own, of course, undeniable point of view. There is no doubt that the next few years will bring us a lot of discoveries and will new fibers, mainly synthetic, with valuable technical properties.

They are not intended for mass production, because their scope – just a special area. In most cases, their Production will be limited to hundreds or even tens of tons per year. But it will be tons of precious because each of them does not replace the hundreds of tons of others – the mass – chemical fibers.
