Fibrillated fibres have mechanical properties which are the same as, or similar to, those of the corresponding fibre types in filler or short cut fibre form. Their main differences derive from their branched structure (fibrils) and their demonstrably, substantially greater surface area. Owing to these specific properties of the fibres, additional effects are derived, e.g. thixotropic properties.
