Abstract : The effect of changes in the external structure of PVS (polivinilspirtovyye; polyvinyl alcohol)-fibers caused microorganisms of plant fibers and characterized by the number of microbial attacks on their mechanical strength was determined for the antimicrobic fibers letilan and biolan. These fibers were exposed to a complex of microorganisms of plant fibers, and also pure bacterial cultures that most vigorously attack plant fibers and that were isolated directly from flax and jute fibers. For comparison, the experiment included also ordinary formalinized fiber called vinol. (Author)
