BACTERIA OF THE GENUS BACILLUS AS A METHOD OF DIRECTED MODIFICATION OF POLYCAPROAMIDE FIBERS
In this paper, studies are presented that indicate the feasibility and effectiveness of the use of the genus Bacillus microorganisms for the directional modification of physicomechanical properties (strength, nominal stretching) of polycaproamide fibers and the production of high-strength polymer-matrix composites. Bacteria of the genus Bacillus can affect the structure of the surface of the fibers by increasing the nanoroughness and the amorphous layer. It is possible to use Bacillus brevis, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus mesentericus and others strains to improve the consumer characteristics by the direct biodegradation of polycaproamide fibers.
