Uses and Applications
DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® fibres bring together flame and temperature resistance, strength, reinforcement, and other properties that can help improve hoses, tyres, belts, filters and other automotive components.
DuPont™ Kevlar® and DuPont™ Nomex® brand fibres help improve the safety, performance, and durability of automotive components such as automotive hoses for a wide variety of vehicles, from passenger cars and trucks to professional racecars.
Learn why proper safety measures such as wearing garments made of DuPont™ Tyvek® or DuPont™ Tychem® should be applied in industry and trade to help protect from the frequently underestimated dangers of surface treatments and coatings.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) suits are designed using inherent flame-resistant inner and outer layers made of Nomex® fibre and flexible, semi-rigid and rigid ballistic protective elements made of Kevlar® fibre. The suits are tailored for protection and mobility, dexterity and comfort for each body part.
As leader in flame-resistant protection technology, DuPont helps protect industrial workers, firefighters, police officers and military forces against fire hazards.
Fabrics of Nomex® help allow for an excellent lightweight and arc flash protection performance.
Nomex® ProVis fabric offers inherent protection from heat and flame, from molten metal splashes, and from heat of an electric arc; it is anti-static and performs in environments where high day light visibility is required.
