“Global Polybenzimidazole Fiber Market Analysis Trends, Applications, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast to 2028” is a recent report generated by MarketResearch.biz. The global polybenzimidazole fiber market report has been segmented on the basis of type, application, and region.
Global Polybenzimidazole Fiber Market: Overview
Polybenzimidazole (PBI) fiber is a synthetic fiber with high chemical and thermal stability. It is widely used to fabricate protective apparels such as astronaut space suits, welder’s apparel, firefighter's gear, high-temperature protective gloves, and aircraft wall fabrics. Polybenzimidazole fiber is prepared by condensation reaction of 3,3’,4,4’-tetraaminodiphenyl and diphenyl isophthalate. It is further processed by polymerization and high temperature dry-spinning process in order to achieve desired mechanical properties and produce PBI staple fiber using conventional cutting and crimping techniques.
