Zylon fibres are used at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory for structural reinforcement of high field pulse magnet coils. We have studied the fibre properties with respect to the aging effect and light resistance. The high modulus and strength values were associated to the crystalline and texture. Long time exposure to lab-light was found to decay the crystallinity, increase disorder, and introduce more defects (micro-voids). No function group breaking was observed under light-aging.
