The Thermal Property of Soybean Protein–PVA Fibers


Article Preview

In order to analysis the processing and serviceability of soybean protein-PVA fibers, the thermal property is studied by TG and DSC and other methods. The result is compared with that of the wool. The glass transition temperature of soybean protein-PVA fiber is 81°C.The decomposition temperature is 313°C.The heat dry air shrinkage rate is 2.3%. The heat endurance meets with the demand of processing and end use.
