Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9617119A1] Fiber produced from high density (>0.940 g/cm<3>) polyethylene resins. The resins have a MWD less than 3.6, a melt index in the range from 4 to 1000, and a Mz/Mw ratio less than 2.2. Both homopolymers and copolymers of ethylene may be used in this invention. The fibers may be formed by the spunbonded, meltblown or melt spinning processes and may be used to form fabrics and garments.
