Oxidation Ovens for the oxidation and stabilization of PAN fibers
Best-in-class production equipment from the market leader
Our Oxidation Ovens are used to thermally stabilize Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) fibers and to convert them into Oxidized PAN.
The precursor fibers are taken from a spool or out of a box and are conveyed through the multi-stage oxidation process in the form of a tow band. After the oxidation, the fibers are sized and collected. Oxidized PAN fibers can be used in continuous form or as chopped or milled fibers, which requires another process step.
There is a variety of applications for Oxidized PAN ranging from airplane cabin interiors, automotive thermal or acoustic insulation, fire resistant textiles to battery and energy storage applications.
