DuPont™ Nomex® Comfort
DuPont™ Nomex® Comfort absorbs much less moisture than cellulosic fibres such as cotton and viscose, therefore garments made of Nomex® Comfort can dry much more quickly after energetic action, making the wearer feel more comfortable. Knitted fabrics made of Nomex® Comfort are available with antibacterial properties.
93% 1.4 decitex DuPont™ Nomex® meta-aramid
5% DuPont™ Kevlar® para-aramid
2% antistatic fibre
Woven fabrics are widely used for police riot suits, NBC protective garments, pilot suits, and are available in many knitted garment solutions for e.g. underwear polo-shirts and fleece jackets with excellent RTI values.
Has antistatic properties - fabric is tested in accordance with EN 1149-3 and fulfils the electrostatic protection requirements of EN 1149-5 for protective clothing.
Protection and norms
Thermal protection against heat and flame (EN531, ISO/FDIS 11612, EN 469) and electrical arc (IEC 61482-2/CDV).
Helps protect against low volume chemical splash and mist (EN 13034) if treated with fluorocarbon finish. Additional properties can be achieved by combining fabrics made of DuPont™ Nomex® fibres with other materials to provide protection against rain, cold and cool environments and against low voltage electrical current hazards.
Can be supplied pigmented for desired light fastness or piece-dyed.
* Colour availability and lead times need to be confirmed by the converter (spinner, weaver, knitter or garment manufacturer).
