PyroTex Fibers GmbH is the producer of the highly flame and heat resistant fiber PyroTex®
The 5 business units of PyroTex Fibers GmbH (Protective Apparel – Filtration - Public Transportation - Technical applications – Contract textiles) will present the newest products and developments with PyroTex® during the upcoming Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt.
PyroTex® is an engineered acrylic fiber with a limiting oxygen index (LOI) of 43% and a continuous running temperature of 250°C (480°F). It is acid, alkali, UV and hydrolysis resistant. It is not thermoplastic and therefore does not melt or drip.
Additionally it is permanantly anti-baterial.
None of the common FR agents such as antimony, halogens, bromides or phosphoros are used and as such no toxic fumes are emitted.
The fiber 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 10-120mm (0.8-4.0in).
PyroTex® was the first fiber to combine all these properties into one which provided the industry with new possibilities in their product development.
Today PyroTex® is providing safety in airplanes as fire-blocker, comfort and protection as base-layer and outer shell for apparel applications and heat resistance for hotgas filters to only name a few of the ever growing products using PyroTex®.
