Innovative Solution Expands Nomex® into New Areas of Thermal Protection with new DuPont™ Nomex® MHP. Nomex® MHP fabrics offers inherent, multi-hazard protection that can help keep wearers safe from a variety of thermal hazards, including heat and flame, arc flash and small molten metal splashes in hazardous industrial areas. Nomex® MHP gives workers a clear choice for superior multi-hazard protection, proven comfort and market leading durability.
Nomex® XF is a unique material that helps protect aluminum fuselage aircraft by providing a robust, durable and lightweight flame barrier that can help prevent outside fire from penetrating an aircraft cabin, allowing passengers additional time to escape such a hazard. It can also help prevent flame propagation so that aircraft insulation will not spread fire.
