In firefighting, two fibers are better than one. Together, Kevlar® fiber and Nomex® fiber help offer inherent fire resistance, strength, durability, and more.
Fabrics and knits made of DuPont™ Nomex® Comfort help absorb body perspiration quickly and transport the sweat through the fabric away from the skin, helping to keep the wearers’ skin dry.
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.
DuPont™ Nomex® IIIA: this innovative solution expands to form a stable and inert barrier between the fire and skin, which helps give wearers the valuable seconds they need to escape from the hazard.
DuPont™ Nomex® LS is a technology platform offering new properties such as light weight and strength to the inherent flame retardant properties of Nomex® fibres.
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.
DuPont™ Nomex® MTP (Multi-Threat Protection) fabric is a new DuPont proprietary solution that addresses the tough requirements for infantry clothing.
DuPont™ Nomex® ProVis is a DuPont proprietary solution that addresses the requirements of EN 471 for high visibility and helps provide thermal and physical properties similar to Nomex® fabrics.
Racing suits made of Nomex® fiber are inherently flame-resistant, helps providing racing professionals the valuable seconds needed to escape fires.
Thermal personal protective equipment made of DuPont™ Nomex® helps provide police officers with superior protection from the dangers of heat and flame (Molotov cocktails, explosive environments, exploding munitions). It also offers protection from electrostatic discharge hazards, certain chemical splashes, insect bites, and cold and wet weather.
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.
