DEFINITIONPAN stands for polyacrylonitrile, so PAN fiber is a fibre created from this synthetic, semicrystalline organic polymer resin ((C3H3N)n). It is a thermoplastic, but degrades before melting. PAN fibers are the chemical precursor of very high-quality carbon fiber. For this, PAN is first thermally oxidized to form PANOX (oxidized PAN fiber), and then carbonized above 1000 ?C in inert atmosphere.
