April 11, 2006

A conductive polyvinyl alcohol fiber comprising a polyvinyl alcohol polymer and copper sulfide nano-particles was patented. The nano-particles have a mean particle size of at most 50 nm, which are finely dispersed in the polymer. The content of the nano-particles in the fiber is at least 0.5% by mass/polyvinyl acohol polymer. A degree of polymer orientation is at least 60%.
