Biconstituent Fibers from Polypropylene and Polyamide 6: Fiber Spinning Modeling and Properties
Biconstituent fibers fabricated with PA6 and PP blends compatibilized with a PP-g-maleic anhydride exhibited improved tenacity and stiffness, which allow to produced carpets and textiles with enhanced properties. A 1D model for fiber spinning simulation was proposed and validated, based on the PTT viscoelastic model, the transport phenomena equations, a crystallization kinetic model, an empirical correlation for the drag coefficient and the heat transfer coefficient.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
