High performance fibers exhibit extraordinary mechanical properties. These high performance materials are made of ceramics, metals, carbon, and polymers. High performance polymer fibers integrate excellent mechanical properties with low weight.
High tensile strength and high resilience are the two main properties of the high-performance fibers. For some polymer materials, high tensile strength can be obtained using high drawing ratios and high molecular orientation (e.g. for Aramid / Kevlar) duri
