Nomex Thread - Thread Card
NOMEX®: A manufactured fiber in which the fiber forming substance is a long chain synthetic polyamide in which at least 85% of the amide linkages are attached directly to two aromatic rings.
EFFECT OF HEAT: Chars at 675° F. Decomposes at about 700° F. This fiber will not melt.
EFFECTS OF ACIDS & ALKALIS: Unaffected by most acids, except some strength loss after long exposure to hydrochloric, nitric, sulfuric and is generally good resistance to alkalis.
EFFECTS OF BLEACHES & SOLVENTS: Unaffected by most bleaches and solvents except slight strength loss from exposure to sodium chlorite.
RESISTANCE TO MILDEW, AGING, SUNLIGHT, ABRASION: Excellent resistance to mildew and aging. Prolonged exposure to sunlight causes some strength loss. Good abrasion resistance.
