Zunfeng Liu, a materials scientist at the University of Texas at Dallas, and colleagues stretched a 2-millimeter-diameter rubber fiber
to about 15 times its original length and wrapped it in conductive sheets of carbon nanotubes (SN: 12/4/10, p.
The rubber fiber
mixture was ground and then mixed with a dilute sodium hydroxide system.
30) Antibacterial surfaces of electrospun butyl rubber fibers
The proprietary Graft, made of special silicone rubber fibers
and polyester yarn, provides self-sealing characteristics that limit the amount of bleeding common after dialysis needles are removed.
In the production of chemically crosslinked rubber fibers
, the rubber is crosslinked after extrusion which results in comparatively low spinning speeds and limitations with respect to fiber diameter.
