Evonik launches new polyimide fiber on the market
| Subj: New raws
Evonik has developed a new generation of polyimide fibers for the rising demands of the industry. The new product, brand named P84® HT, is distinguished by improved mechanical stability and flexibility at continuously high operating temperatures.
The new polyimide fiber continues Evonik’s three decades of tradition of developing and producing high-performance polymer-based fibers for the hot gas filtration market at the Group’s Lenzing/Schörfling sites in Austria.
HIGH-TECH FIBERS WITH MAXIMUM FILTRATION EFFICIENCY
Another competitive differentiating factor of P84® HT consists in the improved textile properties at high temperatures. The new polyimide fiber from Evonik retains its flexibility better than other materials, even at temperatures around 280°C. As a result, it remains more stable in applications with relatively high average temperatures and frequent temperature spikes. A standardized bending test shows that the new P84® HT fiber has almost twice the flexibility of standard materials.
P84®—THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION IN HOT GAS FILTRATION
Evonik is the leading global producer of chemically resistant, thermally stable, and non-flammable polyimide fibers. These are produced at its chemical production sites in Lenzing, and Schörfling am Attersee, Austria.
