Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A method for preparing wholly aromatic polyamide pulp which comprises conferring an orientation to the polymer just before gelation of the polymer and ageing the gel, wherein the polymerization solvent is used as a heating medium for the ageing.

2. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein said heating medium is of amide solvent.

3. A method in accordance with claim 2, wherein said amide solvent is selected from the group consisting of N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, N,N' -dimethylacetamide, N,N'-dimethylformamide, hexamethylenephosphoamide and the combinations thereof.

4. A method in accordance with one of claims 1 to 3 , wherein said heating medium comprises inorganic salt,

Lewis acid or the mixtures thereof.

5. A method in accordance with claim 4, wherein said inorganic acid is at least one selected from the group consisting of CaC^, LiCl NaCl, KCl, LiBr and KBr.

6. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein said polymerization solvent used as a heating medium for the ageing contains moisture at an amount of 10 ppm to 10 %.

7. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein said heating medium has a temperature of 30 to 100 °C.

8. A method in accordance with claim 7, wherein said heating medium has a temperature of 35 to 75 "C.

9. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein the temperature of said heating medium is higher than that of the gel.

10. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein said ageing is carried out for a period of 1 second to 30 minutes .

11. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein said gel ready for the ageing is 3 cm or less in the thickness or width perpendicular to the orientation direction.
