DuPont™ Nomex® Partner Program – High Levels of Quality and Performance
More than 40 years after it was first developed, DuPont™ Nomex® fibre is still a first choice for fire brigades, police, military and industrial workers who rely on its inherently flame-resistant properties to help keep them safe from the everyday hazards they face.
DuPont, with its overview of technology and product development, collaborates with its spinner, weaver, knitter and garment manufacturer Partners to help them offer garments in Europe that:
- meet end user specific needs
- are of excellent quality and performance (inspected garments made of DuPont certified fabrics according to the Nomex® Label Program
- are the first to contain the latest innovations of Nomex® fabric
- are delivered at an impeccable service level
- have origins clearly traceable through the value chain
A unique label on the interior of the garment identifies the supplier as a Nomex® Partner. In Europe, Nomex® Partners have privileged access to DuPont fibre and fabric innovation, technical expertise and leading edge product testing facilities, including Thermo-Man® and Arc-Man® rigs that help enable them to monitor quality and performance of their finished garments.
The DuPont™ Thermo-Man® life-size mannequin burn simulation test ensures garment’s protective performance and integrity against heat and flame.
The DuPont™ Arc-Man® test and ATPV evaluation test garment’s protective performance and integrity against the thermal hazards of an electric arc.
Garments that have passed the stringent Thermo-Man® and/or Arc-Man® tests have the corresponding icons displayed on this inside label.
