Abstract

This chapter surveys the recent progress in the science and technology of elastomeric fibers in a number of applications in the textile and allied industry. The chemical structure, fiber formation and the relationship between structure and properties of a few representative examples of technologically important elastomeric fibers such as polyurethane, styrene block copolymers, polyolefin, and elastomeric polymer alloys are described to illustrate the benefits of the science and technology of elastomeric fibers that may provide a basis for future progress in this important technological field.
