Chemical stress cracking of acrylic fibres

Abstract

The generation of periodic microscopic transverse cracks in oriented acrylic fibres immersed in hot alkaline hypochlorite solution is described. A variety of chemical stress cracking was observed. It was found that cracking was accelerated by external tensile stress, high fibre permeability, moderate fibre orientation, and water-plasticization. It was also found that the cracking process was a sensitive indicator of residual latent strain in the fibre, which may persist after high-temperature annealing.
