Arselon is fibrous polymer of poly-para-phenilen-1,3,4-oxadiazole.
High thermal resistivity is key factor to use fabrics at temperature 250 °C (480 °F) for the period up to 3 years; the fabrics can resist to 400 °C (750 °F) for a minutes and without shrinkage and melting.
The fabric strong and wear-resistive (durable).
Stable elasticity at low and high temperature.
The fabric is resistive to organic acids and solvents, to oils (mineral and synthetic), moderately resistive to diluted inorganic acids and alkalis. The fiber itself has very high electrical insulation properties.
Fabric napping (optional) offers new range of properties among with new applications.
