The increase of fi bre abrasion properties aims at the lifecycle improvement of technical textiles containing abrasion resistant fi bres. Furthermore, the improvement of fi bre abrasion properties is -presumably -the key to higher productivity and reduction of energy costs. Especially the fi bre composites made of Nylon 6 and two-dimensional particles as organoclays or graphene platelets bear high potentials to achieve increased abrasion properties compared to virgin Nylon 6 fi bres.

The problems to be solved within this research were the transfer of positive eff ects known from bulk polymers, the guarantee of stable multifi lament spinning and the loss of fi bre properties by using additives. The eff ect of two-dimensional particles was visualised with the analysis of the tribological behaviour and mechanical properties. In order to gain the insight into the relationship among the processing conditions, material composition and resulting material properties, Wide Angle X-ray scattering experiments were performed.
