PBO Fiber Innovations: Redefining Strength and Performance

A high performance fiber, PBO (or Poly-p-phenylene-2, 6-benzobisoxazole), is a heat resistant fiber. The benzene fused oxazole ring structure is the backbone of the rigid PBO molecular chain. The studies suggest the mechanical strength of PBO to be over two times stronger than any other commercialized synthetic fibers while also being nearly ten times tougher than steel. Its high creep resistance and tensile strength potentially makes PBO as one of the strongest synthetic fiber in the overall fibers market.

The manufacturing of PBO involves complex operation such as dry jet wet spinning process. The manufacturing costs involved with the production of PBO are much higher and hence, the PBO fibers are employed only in highly demanding applications such as sports goods and mainly defense. As mentioned, PBO is a heat resistant fiber which also features low flammability. PBO is resistant to a variety of organic solvents. Although, its exposure to strong acidic and basic solutions hamper the PBO fiber’s strength, it witnesses lesser impact as compared to the other synthetic fibers.
