Personal Protective Equipment

Protect Your Greatest Assets with Personal Protective Equipment

Performing hazardous jobs comes with high levels of uncertainty.

From military personnel in conflict zones and professional firefighters saving lives, to industrial workers handling volatile chemicals or heat and flame hazards, the dedicated people who work in these vital but dangerous fields rely on innovative personal protective equipment solutions from DuPont.

The world is changing rapidly. As more nations become industrialised, they develop a greater need for personal protective equipment. From emergency response teams and police officers to laboratory technicians or frontline workers in manufacturing, construction, and maintenance, DuPont provides science-based solutions that address this need for protection.

We understand that those who do the dirty work are not made of stone, and we are committed to providing solutions for helping keep them safe from on-the-job hazards. Our personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions include some of the most trusted brands in the industry: DuPont™ Kevlar® fibre for cut, abrasion and ballistic protection, DuPont™ Nomex® fibre for heat, flame and electrical hazards and DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ Tychem® apparel for chemical, biological and particulate protection.

By collaborating with industries and authorities, we can engineer and offer the latest personal protective equipment solutions that can help keep professionals safe while they continue helping, changing and improving the world.
