Since the introduction of the high modulus aramid fiber, Kevlar, by du Pont in the late 1960s , many research groups worldwide have searched for improved or more cost-effective routes to similar or superior fiber properties. It had been recognized since the pioneering work of Herman Mark that the modulus of a polymer in the solid state is a function of three parameters: 84The inherent modulus of the molecular chain The chain packing density The perfection of molecular orientation.
