This paper demonstrates that molecular orientation can also be achieved by starting with a low molecular weight species (M. W. less than 2000) which is oriented in an elongational flow and subsequently cured under UV-irradiation. The orientation of the monomer is frozen-in by the ultra-fast polymerization and crosslinking. The advantages are low-pressure, low-temperature processing, fast extrusion and solidification within 0. 1 seconds. Moreover a three dimensional polymer network is formed, which should maintain the molecular ordering over a wide temperature range.
