This important handbook looks at how high-performance fibers are designed and manufactured and covers their capabilities and applications. The high-modulus, high-tenacity (HM-HT) fibers fall naturally into three groups - polymer fibers, such as aramids and polyethylene fibres; carbon fibers, such as Kevlar; and inorganic fibers based on glass and ceramic fibres. The book shows how high performance fibers are being increasingly used for a wide range of applications including geotextiles and geomembranes├┐ and for construction and civil engineering projects, as well as in specialist fibers within composite materials.

Aramids; Gel-spun high-performance polyethylene fibres; Other high modulus-high tenacity (HM-HT) fibres; Carbon fibres; Glass fibres; Ceramic fibres; Chemically resistant fibres; Thermally resistant fibres.
