DuPont™ Nomex® Fiber For Fire Protection
Fight the Heat with Flame Resistant Clothing
You can’t predict when a fire or electrical hazard will occur or how intense it will be. With so many uncertainty, workers that are exposed to fire and electric arc hazards rely on flame resistant clothing made from DuPont brands. Our portfolio includes Nomex® fiber for fire protection, Protera® fabric for arc flash protection, and Kevlar® fiber for gloves that are resistant to high temperatures.
We believe that just meeting standards isn’t enough, so we rigorously test our materials against a wide variety of scenarios, always working to help manufacturers make their protective apparel and accessories stronger, more durable, and safer. In fact, we go beyond basic test methods and test Nomex® in 4- and 5-second fires or even longer exposure time to give workers those valuable extra seconds of protection.
