Spun yarns & fabrics for thermal protective apparel

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 which further can be processes into many kinds of fabrics for thermal protective apparel application.

 

The spun yarn is being produced from staple fiber 0.17tex (1.5D) / length 36; 51; 66 mm. Arselon staple fiber spinning needs high skilled approach, but as result the spun yarn has unique properties.

APPLICATION OF FABRICS MADE OF SPUN YARN ARSELON®

Because of its unique combination of textile and thermal properties, Arselon fiber is used in a range of thermal protective apparel applications including chemical and petrochemical operators, fire fighter coats, linings against molten metal splatter in aluminum industry.

 

The fabric is also applicable for reinforcing of rubber goods and filtering needled felts.

 

 

Safety and thermal protection is main mission of any fabric which is used for apparel application. The fabrics made of Arselon® fiber have unique properties:

  • High wear resistance
  • Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) min. 28%
  • Same properties after many washing cycles
  • Resistance to abrasion, tear, break
  • Color stability of dyed fabrics
  • No shrinkage
  • Application temperature 250 °C
  • No melting
  • Equilibrium humidity level comparable with cotton or viscose fibers (11-12%)
  • Upon request the fabric is laminated with water-resistant PU-based membrane
