Firefighters and military pilots aren’t the only ones who rely on the inherent heat and flame resistance of Nomex®. It’s a material of choice for a wide range of uses and applications that are essential to our way of life.
Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor, Kevlar® brand aramid fiber is credited with helping to save thousands of lives. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong, it’s used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safer, more cut resistant and durable.
Whenever thermal protection is needed, only one fiber comes to mind — Nomex®. For over 40 years, workers across industries have relied on the inherently flame-resistant properties of Nomex® to help keep them safe from the hazards they face on the job.
Nomex® fabric helps provide uniforms for military and police personnel proven protection against intense heat and flames, with the added benefit of being comfortable to wear.
DuPont’s commitment to safety stands at 6’1” and is covered with 122 heat sensors. Thermo-Man® is one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world and helps DuPont test the performance of flame-resistant garments.
Not all deadly threats come in the form of guns or other weapons. For protection against chemical dangers, industrial workers rely on DuPont™ Tychem® brand garments.
