The company will present the newest Pyrotex products. Pyrotex is an engineered acrylic fibre with a limiting oxygen index (LOI) of 43 percent and a continuous running temperature of 250°C (480°F). It is acid, alkali, UV and hydrolysis resistant. It is not thermoplastic. None FR agents such as antimony, halogens, bromides or phosphoros are used and as such no toxic fumes are emitted. The producer of the highly flame and heat resistant fibre can now also offer solution dyed shades in their 2.8dtex (2.5den) version which has been sought after by many customers. The fibre which is certified Class I according to the very strict Oeko-Tex Standard 100, can be used in nonwovens as well as in spun yarns and is available in 2.2/2.8/3.8dtex (2.0/2.5/3.5den) and cut lengths between 10 to 120mm (0.8 to 4.0in). PyroTex offers new possibilities in product development, e.g. safety in airplanes as a fire-blocker, comfort and protection as a base-layer and outer shell for apparel applications and heat resistance for hotgas filters.
