A simple fiber length-reduction method was developed to obtain a large amount of fiber samples with different length distributions for use in various biological experiments. This press method is only to press a raw fiber sample charged in a stainless cylinder at an adequate pressure, and is effective for man-made mineral fibers (MMMF) such as glass wool, rock wool and wool and refractory fibers (ceramic fibers, mullite fibers) and some brittle natural mineral fibers such as fibrous brucite and… CONTINUE READING
