Modacrylic fiber is a flame-resistant, synthetic copolymer synthesized from acrylonitrile and other polymers, in tow and staple form. These copolymer fibers are strong, soft, resilient, and dimensionally stable. They are commercially used for various applications such as apparel linings, paint-roller covers, scatter rugs, carpets, work clothing, and as hair in wigs. Modacrylic fibers are widely employed in high-performance protective clothing such as firefighting turnout gear owing to their high degree of flame resistance. They can be molded, stretched, and embossed into special shapes, due to their low softening temperatures. Furthermore, they are commonly utilized in protective clothing, upholstery, drapery, bedding, and carpet industries. The combination of flame retardancy and low density is also useful in furnishings, draperies, and outdoor fabrics.
