Definitions for "Fibrillation"
The state of being reduced to fibers.
involuntary brief twitch of a muscle; visible under the skin & not associated with movement of the affected muscle
Rapid, uncoordinated contractions of individual heart muscle fibers.
the longitudinal splitting of a fibre or filament to give either micro-fine surface hairs or a complete breakdown into sub-micron fibres. In fabrics for apparel, fibrillation can be used to create a variety of surface textures and attractive aesthetics. In hydroentangled nonwoven fabrics, the fibrils make entanglement easier and can give added strength to the fabric.
The process of splitting a longitudinally oriented fibre, textile film or tape into a network of interconnected fibres. Fibrillation can also refer to a fibrillar failure of a fibre or film structure. Note: Processes for producing fibrillation may be divided into two groups: (i) those producing random splitting to give a relatively coarse network, e.g., by twisting or rubbing; and (ii) those producing controlled splitting to give a relatively fine network, e.g., by rapidly rotating pinned rollers.
Act of loosening the fibrillae during the mechanical process of beating the fibers in preparation for papermaking.
A term commonly associated with refining of pulp. It results in the loosening of threadlike elements from the fibre wall to provide greater surface for forming fibre-to-fibre bonds.
