Abstract

According to our previous studies [1,2], the optimum melting conditions have been achieved and lower melt flow index grade has been utilized in this work. In order to characterize the melt-spun AAC fibers, spin-draw ratio, optical birefringence and drawability were measured. The statistical optimization of fiber properties helps to produce the most satisfactory properties in the final fibers as an environmentally friendly attractive alternative to commercial chemical fibers. The importance of this model is in controlling the production process to optimize and enhance fiber properties, which may improve the quality and cost of biodegradable fibers.
