Abstract : Stabilized Carbon Fibers derived from pitch precursor were woven into fabrics of eight-harness satin, five-harness satin, and plain weave construction and subsequently pyrolyzed to produce six prototype fabrics for evaluation. Four of these fabrics utilized yarn of approximately 1350 denier and two of 2700 denier. Forty-eight yard samples of each fabric were delivered to AFML. Properties of the fabrics, as determined by Union Carbide Corp., are reported. (Author)
