The use of shape-memory polymers in textile application is relatively new, because the stringent requirements on mechanical strength and thermal stability of fibres have been so far hard to meet. This section reviews the current state-of-the-art, focusing on the key characteristics of the polymer materials required to produce textile-grade fibres, and the techniques of filament production. An extensive review of literature on this subject is presented, with the results of our own development of shape-memory polyurethane polymers and their fibres for textile applications.

Abstract

The use of shape-memory polymers in textile application is relatively new, because the stringent requirements on mechanical strength and thermal stability of fibres have been so far hard to meet. This section reviews the current state-of-the-art, focusing on the key characteristics of the polymer materials required to produce textile-grade fibres, and the techniques of filament production. An extensive review of literature on this subject is presented, with the results of our own development of shape-memory polyurethane polymers and their fibres for textile applications.
