Nomex® for emergency response

 
 
 
 
 
 

The protection that every hero deserves

 
 
 
 
 
 

Day in and day out, firefighter apparel made with DuPont™ Nomex® fiber helps protect those who put their lives on the line. Nomex® is a revolutionary, heat- and flame-resistant fiber that reacts in an emergency.  When exposed to extreme heat, Nomex® undergoes a special reaction, changing its properties to capture more energy in the fabric, helping to give the wearer valuable extra seconds of protection from heat transfer.

What’s more, Nomex® helps manufacturers make firefighter apparel more comfortable.  In fact, it can enable the lowest possible weight at the highest level of protection.  The inherent heat and flame protection of Nomex® fibers cannot be washed or worn away. And, with its higher air permeability, Nomex® can help reduce heat stress. 

Those who dedicate their lives to protecting ours deserve the best protection available.  That’s why we continue to collaborate with firefighters and garment manufacturers to develop innovations that will help improve overall firefighter safety.
