Development of Planar Orientation in Polymer Processing

Masao Horio


A critical discussion is presented of the development of planar orientations in various polymer processing operations. These include tubular blown film and subsequently drawn and multiply stretched blown films. The response of polyethylene, various nylons, poly(ethylene terephthalate), cellulose and poly(p-phenylene terephthalamide) are discussed.
