Polyacrylonitrile is an acrylic homopolymer, known as acrylic in filtration, is made from 100% acrylonitrile.
The main advantage of acrylic fiber (polyacrylonitrile) is its excellent resistance to hydrolysis, its low cost compared to high-performance fibers and relatively high thermal stability. Acrylic is not hydrolyzed, many applications use water repellent treatments to reduce tendencies of adhesion of moisture or rainfall.
|Application in the following industries:
Maximum Continuous in Dry Conditions: 120°C
Maximum Surge in Dry Conditions: 145°C
Additional treatments for polyacrylonitrile fabrics used:
oil and water repellent
