As before, the hot drawing process helps to further develop its strength and give it its high properties. The ﬁbre has moderate crystallinity with a random distribution of amorphous regions through its ﬁne structure with its high strength and modulus attributed to its extended chain structure. Ozawa  provides more details regarding the effect of draw ratio and the associated mechanism in the case of aramid copolymers processing. He refers to three modes of drawing. An ordinary draw mechanism would prevail in the case of low draw ratio, below two for Technora®, which is characterised by improved crystal size and uniformity and better orientation of the chains.
2 21 Spinning of ﬁbres Production of ﬁbres initially involves heating the spinning solution up to a suitable processing temperature, which is of the order of 80 C for the highly concentrated solutions in 100% (water-free) [87a] sulphuric acid. At this temperature above a polymer concentration of about 10 wt%, the solution state corresponds to a nematic liquid crystalline phase. The concentration limit for the polymer in spinning solution is 20 wt%. If concentrations above this critical limit are used, spinnability is affected due to undissolved material; therefore the resulting ﬁbre has inferior mechanical properties.
9 Schematic representation of the microstructure of (a) semicrystalline polymers such as nylon-6 and (b) poly-p-phenylene terephthalamide. Fibre axis is vertical. The supermolecular structure of a high-modulus polyaromatic material such as Kevlar® 49 has been reported by Dobb et al. . In this work a combination of electron diffraction and electron microscope dark ﬁeld image techniques were utilised. Detailed analysis conducted by the authors led to the assignment that there was a uniform distribution of ordered crystalline material throughout the ﬁbre and that the dark ﬁeld banding observed was a manifestation of changes in crystalline orientation and not of crystalline order.
