We demonstrate the continuous production of liquid-filled polymeric fibers in a stable melt-spinning process at the pilot plant scale. Different polymers and liquids could successfully be combined over a wide range of core-sheath dimensions. The ability to produce a continuous liquid-core fiber (LCF) is attractive since post-filling of a hollow fiber with similar dimensions is not practical. We characterized...
