Kynol® Novoloid fibres are chemical-cross-linked phenolic resin fibres. The unique advantages are the high flame resistance, they do not have a melting point, minimum smoke emission and they nearly do not produce toxic gases in case of fire (no HCN or halogens etc.)

Furthermore they provide an excellent resistance against acids, alkalis, solvents, oils and vapour as well as very good electrical and thermal insulating (even up to -196°C).
