FR Apparel Newsletter Volume 7

See DuPont™ Thermo-Man® in Action


DuPont™ Thermo-Man®—one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world—lets you see how garments perform as they're subjected to the most extreme flash-fire conditions.

In addition to the five Thermo-Man® testing laboratories located throughout the world, DuPont also has a mobile Thermo-Man® demonstration unit. Throughout 2018, this mobile fire simulation and FR garment testing system has traveled far and wide from coast to coast in the United States and Canada, enabling people to see for themselves the importance of wearing appropriate flame-resistant (FR) protective apparel—and showing the severe consequences that can occur if they don't.
