(2006): Nanoindentation of regenerated cellulose fibres
Cellulose, 13, 1-7 FullText FullText_BOKU

Nanoindentation was performed on cross sections of regenerated cellulose fibres with different structure and properties. Same as in single-fibre tensile tests, the elastic modulus of lyocell was higher than the elastic modulus of viscose. However, in spite of its tensile strength being twice as high as viscose, the hardness of lyocell was 15% lower than viscose. The overall degree of orientation of cellulose chains being higher in lyocell than in viscose, it is proposed that reduced lateral bonding in lyocell is the reason for the low hardness measured by nanoindentation compared to viscose.
