Oriented Structures And Mechanical Properties Of Self-reinforced HDPE Monofilaments For Fishing

Feb 26, 2018

Self-reinforced high density polyethylene (HDPE) monofilaments for fishing were prepared by using self-reinforced technique. The oriented structures and mechanical properties of self-reinforced HDPE and common HDPE monofilaments for fishing were compared by wide angle X-ray diffraction (WAXD), sonic velocity method, SC 5005 standard, etc. The results indicated that compared with common HDPE monofilaments for fishing, self-reinforced HDPE monofilaments got slight bigger in crystalline sizes, unit cell parameters and crystal plane spacing. Besides, the self-reinforced HDPE monofilaments for fishing were higher than the common HDPE monofilaments in crystallization, oriented degree, orientation factor, breaking strength, knot breaking strength and rate of loss of knot breaking strength, respectively.
