Abstract: Fibers (strands) with various draw ratios were spun from the liquid crystalline state of a pure aromatic liquid crystalline copoly(ester amide) and the melts of its blend with polycarbonate. Scanning electron microscopy (SEMI, wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were employed to investigate the structure and properties of the resulting fibers. Mechanical properties of the fibers were also evaluated. I t was found that both the crystallite size and heat of fusion of …
