Staple fiber

Polyoxadiazole fiber (registered trademark Arselon®) is being produced in the Republic of Belarus. As the production process was designed alternatively to meta-aramid fibers, thus by its properties Arselon is very similar to various meta-aramid fibers. The staple fiber Arselon is a basis for spun yarns and felts which further can be processed into many kinds of materials for thermal application.

FEATURES OF ARSELON®

  • Oxygen index (LOI) is 30%;
  • No melting;
  • Temperature of use 250 °C;
  • Heat shock temperature 400° C;
  • Flexible at high low temperatures;
  • Low thermal expansion coefficient;
  • Friction coefficient (metal surface) 0.2;
  • Good adhesion to rubber;
  • Moisture level 10-12% (similar to cotton);
  • High electrical insulation properties.

APPLICATION OF ARSELON®

  • Heat resistant spun yarns and fabrics (protective apparel, gloves, home and office textile);
  • Woven and non-woven filtering materials, bag filters (metallurgy, cement, sphalt);
  • Composites (sealing, sliding bearings, packing).
