All PBO Fiber Materials

PBO Fiber Plants

Fortune Cat® Poly-p-phenylene benzobisoxazole (PBO) fiber production base mainly produce PBO fiber filament, chopped PBO fiber, PBO short fiber, PBO fiber cloth, PBO pulp, and PBO finished products.

The high-end PBO fiber products produced by Fortune Cat® have a strength of 5.8 GPa (reported in Germany as 5.2 GPa) and a modulus of 280 GPa, which is the highest among existing chemical fibers; The heat-resistant temperature reaches 600 ℃, the ultimate oxygen index is 68, and it does not burn or shrink in flames. Its heat resistance and flame retardancy are higher than any other type of organic fiber. Mainly used in heat-resistant industry textiles and fiber reinforcement materials.

PBO fibers have excellent properties in strength, modulus, heat resistance, and flame resistance, especially Fortune Cat®'s PBO fiber strength not only exceeds that of steel fibers, but also surpasses that of carbon fibers. In addition, the PBO fiber of Fortune Cat® has excellent impact resistance, friction resistance, and dimensional stability, and is lightweight and soft, making it an extremely ideal textile material.

PBO produced by Fortune Cat® has excellent physical, mechanical, and chemical properties. Its strength and modulus are twice that of Kevlar fibers, and it also has the heat and flame-retardant properties of meta-aramid fibers. Moreover, its physical and chemical properties completely surpass those of Kevlar fibers, which are currently leading in the field of high-performance fibers. A PBO filament with a diameter of 1 millimeter can lift a weight of 450 kilograms, and its strength is more than 10 times that of steel wire fibers.
