Acrylic Fiber
Polyacrylonitrile (a.k.a. PAN, Acrylic Fiber) is a polymer resin mainly composed of acrylonitrile. This important acrylic resin is used in the production of a wide range of products, from ultra-filtration membranes to high-quality carbon fibers. While acrylonitrile homopolymer, due to its prevailing polar nature, has unique characteristics such as hardness, rigidity, and resistance to chemicals, solvents and heat, this polymer has limited application as it combines high melting point, high melt viscosity, and poor thermal stability.
The uses and applications of Polyacrylonitrile may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyacrylonitrile are modacrylic fibers (35 to 85 wt% acrylonitrile); and acrylic fibers (minimum of 85 wt% acrylonitrile).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
