Abstract:

The study revealed that the heat-stabilizing effect in kapron fiber is achieved by the complex overall action of a 0.02 admixture of stabilin-1. Apparently, this effect is primarily due to a change in the polymer structure. The role of copper in the thermal oxidation process is very complex and still insufficiently clear. Copper probably ties up the radicals formed, blocks the terminal carboxyl and amino groups of the polymer, or forms a chelate complex, thus inhibiting the thermal oxidative processes taking place in the polymer fiber.
