DUPONT PRODUCTS & SERVICES
The latest innovation from DuPont, Nomex® MHP for arc flash clothing protects against multiple hazards, including heat and flame, electrical arc flash, and molten metal splash.
DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers are used to help provide strength, flexibility, and lightweight protection in everything from yarns and woven ballistic fabrics to ropes and apparel.
In firefighting, two fibers are better than one. Together, Kevlar® fiber and Nomex® fiber help offer inherent fire resistance, strength, durability, and more.
DuPont™ Nomex® fibers are heat- and flame-resistant, and are used in protective fabrics, garments, insulation, and other high-performance applications to help provide protection to millions of people and processes worldwide.
For hazards like flash fire, pool fire, and molten metal splash, DuPont created Nomex® III A — a blend of 93% Nomex® with 5% Kevlar® and 2% antistatic fiber that expands to form a stable and inert barrier between fire and skin.
To give our warfighters the confidence it takes to focus on the fight, DuPont helps keep them safe from flash fires with Nomex® brand fiber.
Based on the Nomex® brand that has been trusted by firefighters around the world for more than 50 years, Nomex® Nano and Nomex® Nano Flex are not only the next generation of FR solutions from DuPont, they represent the future of turnout gear.
Racing suits made of Nomex® fiber are inherently flame-resistant, helps providing racing professionals the valuable seconds needed to escape fires.
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.
Firefighter apparel made with Nomex® and Kevlar® fiber helps provide reliable protection against the hazards firefighters face on the job.
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.
