DuPont™ Background:

For more than 40 years DuPont™ has developed technologies and lightweight, durable and comfortable products that significantly reduce the risk of burns in extreme conditions.

DuPont™ Nomex® provides:

  • MULTI-HAZARD PROTECTION: With DuPont™ Nomex® technology usage millions of wearers, preserved from flames and intense heat, can safely protect what matters most. It is a flame-resistant, high-temperature resistant meta-aramid fibre that doesn’t melt and drip. It minimizes burn injury and applies where exceptional and reliable protection is required.
  • SAFETY & PROVEN COMFORT During DuPont™ Thermo-Man® tests, Nomex® garments demonstrated less 2nd and 3rd degree body burns than other flame-retardant-treated cotton garments after and exposure of four seconds.*  It delivers an innovative combination of high mechanical strength, fabric flexibility and breathability to ensure extreme protection and wear comfort same time. 
  • LASTING PERFORMANCE & DURABILITY  Nomex® is inherently flame and high temperature resistant. It’s not treated with flame-retardant substances. It maintains dimensional stability, appearance and protective performance. At only 150-265 g/m2, it’s much lighter than other flame retardant materials.
