Toyobo Zylon® HM Fiber/Epoxy Matrix Unidirectional Composite
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Carbon Fiber/Thermoset Composite; Epoxy

Material Notes: Poly(p-phenylene-2,6-benzobisoxazole) (PBO) is a rigid-rod isotropic crystal polymer. Zylon is a high performance fiber developed by TOYOBO. Zylon has superior tensile strength and modulus compared to p-Aramid fibers. It also has outstanding high flame resistance and thermal stability. Zylon shows excellent performance in such properties as creep, chemical resistance, cut/abrasion resistance and high temperature abrasion resistance, that far exceeds p-Aramid fibers. Zylon's moisture regain is low (0.6%) and it is dimensionally stable against humidity. Zylon is quite flexible and has a very soft hand, in spite of its extremely high mechanical properties. It can be processed into various product forms, such as continuous filament, staple fiber, spun yarn, woven and knitted fabrics, chopped fiber and pulp.
