Enhanced Heat Shields for Better Performance.
The inherent thermal resistance of DuPont™ Nomex® makes it ideal for high-temperature automotive applications, including heat shields and other under-the-hood applications.
Sheet structures made with DuPont™ Nomex® fiber are used as heat shields, as well as insulation shields for spark plug leads. Other under-the-hood applications where Nomex® helps provide value include flexible, high-temperature hoses, such as those feeding hot air to inlet manifolds. Inside automobiles, Nomex® fiber helps keep engine bays from overheating, radiator hoses from bursting, and windshield wipers from failing, even in inclement weather conditions.
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.
