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.
Every day, workers all over the world rely on products made of DuPont Kevlar® fibre to help provide proven cut protection against broken glass, metal shards, or razor sharp machinery while helping them maintain the comfort and dexterity needed for complex tasks.
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.
