Pyromex™ is an oxidized PAN fiber with non-flammable and non-melting characteristics.
This product is produced without additional Bromine/halide compounds, making Pyromex™ ideal to meet flame resistance requirements while at the same time fulfilling environment regulations. The Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) of Pyromex™ is 50–60, which is much higher than other organic flame-resistant fibers. Pyromex™ is widely used in welding blankets, fleece insulation, and carbon/carbon brake applications.
Pyromex™ is ideal for critical aerospace applications thanks to its superior chemical purity and aerospace-grade production standards. Pyromex™ does not melt, drip or support flame. This makes it ideal for safety clothing and fire protection.
