4Creep Properties

ZYLON has superior creep resistance to p-Aramid fibers. (Creep means a non-recoverable strain after prolonged static loading.) When a certain load is applied to yarn, recoverable strain (initial strain) and non-recoverable strain are observed. For ZYLON HM,non-recoverable strain after 100 hours under 50% of breaking load (Safety factor(SF)=2) is less than 0.03%.
