ABSTRACT COATED EXTENDED CHAIN POLYOLEFIN FIBER High tenacity, high modulus ultrahighmolecular weight fibers of polyethylene or poly-propylene are coated with polyethylene, polypropyleneor an ethylene and/or propylene copolymer. Thecoating improves certain properties of the monofila-ment or multifilament, including adhesion to variousmatrices in complex composites and resistance of thefiber to fibrillation.
