Due to PAN's special properties such as low density, thermal stability, high strength and modulus of elasticity, stability to UV degradation, nonfusible and chemical resistance, make it an essential polymer for high technology and textile applications.
The PAN has been used of this discovery mainly for textile applications due to its wool-like characteristics.
All fiber production is carried out by 2 processes only, known as wet spinning and dry spinning.
The other main application of PAN is in the production of carbon fiber, accounting for about 90% of its world production.
Other minority applications are:
Fibers for cement reinforcement
Awning fabrics and out-door applications
Oxidized PAN fibers for thermal and acoustic insulation
Manufacture of felts for hot air filtration
