Single fibre strength properties In addition to the dimensions of fibres, the pulping process influences structure of the fibre wall and surface and thus the strength properties of the fibre. Single fibre strength Measurement of fibre strength gives the axial tensile strength of the fibre. Material properties such as elastic modulus, tensile strength, and stretch
