New Nomex® naming system


Nomex®—new names, same proven performance

In direct response to insights gathered from end users around the world, DuPont is introducing a globally consistent naming convention that more simply conveys the protection, durability, comfort and performance of DuPont™ Nomex® solutions.

Now it will be easier than ever for safety managers in the oil & gas, utilities & mining, manufacturing & transportation, and emergency response industries to specify the most appropriate Nomex® solution to meet the personal protective equipment (PPE) needs of workers—no matter where they are in the world.

Although many of the product names you know are changing, you can rest assured that the properties and performance of these Nomex® solutions will remain the same. Simply stated, we are making the product names within our global portfolio consistent around the world, so they will be easier to specify in all regions and bring new innovations in FR and arc flash protective solutions to the marketplace.
