Research on the Tensile and Surface Frictional Property of PLA Fibers
In order to understand the mechanical properties of the PLA fibers, the basic properties of the PLA fibers are measured with different instruments. By the analysis of the results, the following conclusions can be deduced: in the dry state, the initial module and the breaking elongation of the PLA fibers are greater than that of the polyester and nylon and the breaking strength and the breaking work of the PLA fibers are situated between that of the polyester and nylon; in the wet state, the mechanical properties of the PLA fibers have more remarkable changes.
