Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor, Kevlar® brand aramid fiber is credited with helping to save thousands of lives. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong, it’s used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safer, more cut resistant and durable.
Whenever thermal protection is needed, only one fiber comes to mind — Nomex®. For over 40 years, workers across industries have relied on the inherently flame-resistant properties of Nomex® to help keep them safe from the hazards they face on the job.
Built on a 50-year track record, Nomex® provides lightweight, durable, heat and flame-resistant performance for a range of applications and industries.
Nomex® provides lightweight, flame-resistant and corrosion resistant solutions that help the global aerospace industry meet safety standards, increase fuel efficiency and reduce operating and maintenance costs .
The inherent heat and flame resistance of Nomex® helps improve the safety, performance and durability of various under-the-hood components, including automotive heat shield, for a wide variety of vehicles.
To provide electricians, utility workers, and other industrial workers with inherently flame-resistant garments for protection against electric arc flash, DuPont engineered Protera® is NFPA 70E–Compliant.
DuPont’s commitment to safety stands at 6’1” and is covered with 122 heat sensors. Thermo-Man® is one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world and helps DuPont test the performance of flame-resistant garments.
