INFORMATION & IDEAS
Fabrics and garments made of DuPont™ Nomex® help enable light-weight solutions with excellent moisture management.
DuPont has added more innovations to its protective garment range with enhanced design features that offer improved personal protection while ensuring comfort and ease of movement for the wearer.
Dusseldorf, 5 November 2013. DuPont, specialists in innovative body protection, is introducing at A+A 2013 a new Tychem® coverall that provides a new alternative for workers seeking safe and comfortable protection in more demanding applications.
A+A 2013 marks the market launch of the new Tyvek® 800 J coverall by DuPont, the specialists in innovative body protection.
A clean-up operation can take many forms and it is this need for readiness against a multitude of possible events that presents one of the biggest challenges to the emergency planner.
Environmental disasters and emergencies can be either man-made or the result of natural phenomena but in either case they almost invariably necessitate a rapid and effective response if the human and environmental impacts are to be mitigated and rectified.
With a global reputation for innovation and development in inherent, multi-hazard protection for a variety of thermal hazards, DuPont Nomex® MHP fabric will be on display on the DuPont booth at this year’s A+A (Hall 05-A40). This fabric represents the next-generation of protection against heat and flame, arc flash and small molten metal splashes for industrial areas.
Typical protective fabrics made of Nomex® fibres can be up to 40% lighter than cotton and cotton-blended fabrics which were treated with flame-retardant chemicals.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can lead to the generation of sparks with energy levels sufficient to ignite possible surrounding vapours, aerosols of flammable liquids or dust particles, leading to an explosion.
Chemical hazards can occur in conjunction with thermal hazards, such as accidental splashes of chemical products onto protective clothing, or through leakages of chemical products.
