Development of High-performance Flame-Shielding Paper by Toray
Toray has announced the development of special flame-shielding paper using polyphenylene sulfide fiber TORCON™ and Zoltek’s flame resistance yarn. The new paper features a high-performance flame-shielding with outstanding fire resistance. This flexible thin film offers a flame-shielding performance of more than 10 minutes.
The new paper will replace the thick and solid fire retardant materials helping in saving space while reducing the final products.
Polyphenylene sulfide fiber TORCON is a thermoplastic fiber with fire retardation, heat resistance and chemical resistance properties which is mainly used in bag filter for coal-fired thermal power generation boilers. Furthermore, the flame resistance yarn produced by Zoltek is an oxidized polyacrylonitrile yarn fired in air and is used in various industrial fields led by brake pads for aircraft and spatter sheet
