Performance when the heat is on
PPE garments made with Nomex® provide the ultimate in heat and flame-resistant protection against a range of thermal hazards. From heat and flame to arc flash protection, Nomex® delivers uncompromising FR protection.
Inherently flame resistant, Nomex® offers supreme strength and heat performance versus many other products on the market. It doesn’t melt, drip or support combustion in the air. A key factor in the protection provided by Nomex® is its ability to carbonize and thicken when exposed to intense heat. This typical reaction increases the protective barrier between the heat source and the wearer’s skin and minimizes burn injury. As the protection is engineered into the molecular structure of the Nomex® fibre (as opposed to chemical treatment), the heat and flame resistance will last the lifetime of the garment – the protection cannot be washed out or worn away.
