Disclaimer: DuPont is the manufacturer of Nomex® Nano Flex and does not design or manufacture firefighter hoods. This information corresponds to our current knowledge on the subject of firefighter hoods and may be subject to revision as new knowledge becomes available. It is your responsibility to investigate other sources of information on this issue that more appropriately addresses your product and its intended use.
The nature of fires may be very different. Therefore, it is very challenging to generate data that represents every possible chemical residue from firefighter PPE including particle barrier hoods. The types and levels of contaminants of a soiled hood can vary significantly. The conditions in these case studies may not be typical of the conditions encountered in your actual situations.
We are continuously looking for guidelines from NFPA project “How Clean is Clean” to identify what is needed to adequately clean personal protective equipment.
