We all know that fibres are the building blocks of fabrics. These textile fibres find applications in various fields. Hence their performance should satisfy our needs. From the day fibres have stepped into industrial applications their demand has increased drastically. This in turn takes the industries to a higher position. As the generations pass, the innovations change the passion of people. The fabric that is being produced can have many properties that are equivalent to or stronger than steel. This article discusses the properties and the applications of oxidized fibres.
Keywords: oxidized fibres, PANOX, oxidation of fibres.
1. INTRODUCTION
The properties of fibre are very impressive. When we talk of apparel applications, we talk on the feel and appearance of the fabric. But when it comes to industrial applications, the technologists completely rely on improving the strength, modulus, thermal stability etc. of the fibres. We call such fibres as the high performance fibres. However by nature only few fibres have high strength and modulus. Natural fibres are not as strong as synthetic or man-made fibres. But the point to be noted is that, their performance and properties can be improved by various methods. One of the methods is oxidation. Most commonly oxidized fibres are
 Carbon fibres
 Cotton
 polypropylene

One of the famous industries manufacturing PANOX (oxidized PAN) is SGL groups. They manufacture oxidized and carbonized fibres.
The growth of oxidized fibres is so fast that they are being used in almost 60% of technical industries.
2. EFFECT OF OXIDATION
The surface characteristics, adhesion and the bond strength of the fabric are increased, when oxidized. The reinforced fabrics have good force to hold together. 2
2.1 CF-PolyTetraFluroEthylene
Ozone-treated CF-reinforced PTFE (CF-carbon fibre/PTFE-polytetrafluroethylene) composite had the lowest friction coefficient. An X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of the CF surface...
