Research studies have been performed on various fibers using supercritical carbon dioxide treatments. In these studies, Nylon6,6, PBO Zylon and other polyester fibers are treated under various conditions and post -treated fiber properties are measured and reported. In this research, supercritical CO2 is used as a plasticizing medium, a transport medium, and as a pressurizing medium to enhance the mechanical performance of selected high performance fibers. In a variety of cases, moderate enhancements in mechanical behavior are observed.
