Title
(EN) MICRO-FIBER WEBS OF POLY-4-HYDROXYBUTYRATE AND COPOLYMERS THEREOF PRODUCED BY CENTRIFUGAL SPINNING
(FR) TOILES DE MICROFIBRES EN POLY-4-HYDROXYBUTYRATE ET COPOLYMÈRES DE CELUI-CI PRODUITES PAR FILATURE CENTRIFUGE
Abstract
(EN) Methods to produce micro-fiber webs containing fibers of 4- hydroxybutyrate or copolymers thereof with average diameters from 0.01 to 100 μm, have been developed. The micro-fiber webs are produced by centrifugal spinning. These methods allow the micro-fiber webs to be produced without substantial loss of the polymer weight average molecular weight. Webs containing micro-fibers of poly-4-hydroxybutyrate or copolymer thereof, are made by centrifugal spinning. The micro-fibers have average diameters ranging from 0.01 to 100 μm and contain crimped fibers with a higher elongation at break fibers when compared to fibers derived by melt-blown extrusion, dry spinning and electrospinning. The fibers of the micro-fiber webs have a high degree of orientation. These micro-fiber webs can be used for a variety of purposes including fabrication of medical devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne des méthodes de production de toiles de microfibres contenant des fibres de 4-hydroxybutyrate ou de copolymères de celui-ci avec des diamètres moyens de 0,01 à 100 µm. Les toiles de microfibres sont produites par filature centrifuge. Ces méthodes permettent de produire les toiles de microfibres sans perte importante de la masse moléculaire moyenne en masse du polymère. Des toiles contenant des microfibres de poly-4-hydroxybutyrate ou de copolymère de celui-ci, sont fabriquées par filature centrifuge. Les microfibres ont des diamètres moyens allant de 0,01 à 100 µm et contiennent des fibres frisées avec des fibres à plus grand allongement à la rupture par rapport à des fibres produites par extrusion par fusion-soufflage, filature à sec ou électrofilature. Les fibres des toiles de microfibres ont un haut degré d'orientation. Ces toiles de microfibres peuvent être utilisées pour une grande variété d'applications y compris la fabrication de dispositifs médicaux.
