Strengthening our Workplaces and Products with Industrial Fabrics
As our world becomes increasingly industrialized, so do the demands to protect workers, buildings, and critical processes. DuPont science has engineered the fabrics that have the strength to withstand critical conditions.
For more than 40 years, DuPont has partnered with industries to develop industrial fabrics for a variety of applications and continues to innovate working with partners on new uses. Fabrics include DuPont™ Tyvek® - a durable, lightweight fabric that provides a breathable barrier that cannot be washed or worn away. Because of its properties, Tyvek® can be used in a variety of applications including building homewrap, protective apparel, and medical packaging. Other fabrics include DuPont™ Tychem® for chemical protective apparel, DuPont™ Softesse® medical fabric for drapes and gowns, and DuPont™ Sorona® wiping products.
When industries need fabrics that provide comfort, breathability, strength, or protection, industrial fabrics from DuPont provide the trust and quality partners depend on.
INFORMATION & IDEAS

Touch any garment from the comprehensive DuPont ™ Tyvek® product range and you immediately notice the difference. Antistatically-treated Tyvek® is a unique and versatile material that is tough and exceptionally low-linting, yet extremely light and soft. It is permeable to air and water vapour, yet repels water-based liquids and aerosols, as well as fine particles and fibres.
In the cement industry, DuPont™ Nomex® KD helps provide better filtration and dust retention, with greater reliability at lower energy and material costs.
DuPont™ Nomex® spunlaced filter helps to dramatically reduce lead particle emissions in a glass industry production filter.
