Abstract:

The report describes the modifications which have ben made on the original NRL device for forming superfine, thermoplastic fibers. The modifications allow a more precise control of process variables. They include a a new nozzle which materially reduces shot formation, b an improved heating block and cool- ing system which reduces warm up time, and c an altered collection unit which markedly improves fiber lay down. The formation of reproducible lots of super- fine, thermoplastic fibers of a given material is now possible.
