    KEVLAR fibres heat-treated at 350xB0;C and 500xB0;C for various13; residence time intervals have been characterized by X-ray methods. At both 350xB0;C and 500xB0;C, heat treatment increases the inter-layer distance in the crystal structure. Pronounced misalignment of crystallites is found to occur. The crystallinity of the fibres exhibit an increase with one hour of exposure to 350xB0;C. Exposure to 50QxB0;C, however, decreases the crystallinity by 40 %. Indications of growth in crystallites and/or reduction in defects are observed. Changes in the relative intensities of reflections have also been found to occur.
