Kynol® Novoloid fibers are cured phenol-aldehyde fibers and filaments. Their specific advantages include high flame resistance, minimal smoke emission and practically no toxic off-gassing in flame (neither HCN nor halogens etc).
They display outstanding resistance to acids, bleaches, solvents, fuels, other chemicals and steam; and in addition excellent electrical and thermal insulation (down to minus 196°C).
Kynol Europa GmbH is the contact address for Europe, Near and Middle East and Africa.
Nippon Kynol, Inc. is responsible for the production of the fibers and supplies in Asia, Australia and Oceania.
American Kynol, Inc. is selling Kynol® products in North and South America.
Kynol Carbon Products
Kynol®carbon fibers, yarns, fabrics, felts, etc. are amorphous in structure. Therefore, it is a low-modulus, moderate strength material in comparison to some high-modulus, high-strength carbon fibers.
But they show excellent lubricity, have an outstanding chemical resistance and a lower specific gravity than other types of carbon fiber.
Kynol® fibers and products made from them are used as precursors for carbonisation to yield Kynol® carbon products (fibers, yarns, fabrics, felts, etc.). Because of their amorphous structure they are non-abrasive.
Kynol® also shows excellent results in carbon/carbon composites. Due to their high compatibility with lubricants and impregnants braided Kynol® carbon packings are used widely, specially in high performance applications.
® Activated Carbon Products
Their physico-chemical composition makes Kynol® fibers and textiles excellent precursors for activated carbon textile products. The specific surface area can be set individually in the range of 800 to 2500 m²/g.
The technical advantages, for example high spontaneity of ad- and desorption, excellent rates of removal (even at ppb concentrations) and prevention of \"channelling\", combined with sufficient strength, favour the use of Kynol® activated carbons.
They are highly useful in applications, such as air filtration, solvent recovery, ozone elimination, NBC-protection, and water treatment.
Kynol® activated carbons are also used in electrical and electronic applications, e.g., in double layer capacitors.
