PyroTex Industries is the producer of the highly flame and heat resistant fiber PyroTex®.
PyroTex® is an engineered acrylic fiber with a limiting oxygen index (LOI) of 43% and a continuous running temperature of 250°C (480°F). It is acid, alkali, UV and hydrolysis resistant. It is not thermoplastic and therefore does not melt or drip. None of the common FR agents such as antimony, halogens, bromides or phosphorous are used and as such no toxic fumes are emitted.
The fiber which is certified Class I according to the very strict Oeko-Tex Standard 100, can be used in nonwovens as well as in spun yarns and is available in 2,8/3,8dtex (2.5/3.5den) and cut lengths between 10-120mm.
PyroTex® was the first fiber to combine all these properties into one which provided the industry with new possibilities in their product development.
Today PyroTex® is providing safety in airplanes as fire-blocker, comfort and protection as base-layer and outer shell for apparel applications and heat resistance for hotgas filters to only name a few of the ever growing products using PyroTex®.

PyroTex Fireblocker, airplane seats
The PyroTex® fireblocker has passed all relevant tests such as FAR 25.853, ABD 0031 etc.
Especially the lighter weight compared to the currently used fireblocker made of treated cotton as well as the improved ageing performance has led to the success and increased usage of PyroTex® in this field.
