After the flames: how FR workwear performs in an emergency
Beat the heat with fire resistant clothing
Fire is unpredictable. And deadly. That’s why workers who face on-the-job threats of fire and electric arc hazards rely on (FR) clothing made with DuPont™ Nomex®.
Every day around the world, in labs, on battlefields, in burning buildings and countless other hot spots, this advanced fiber helps keep millions of workers safe from extreme danger. The inherent protection of Nomex® fiber—protection that can’t be washed out or worn away—is an essential safeguard for emergency responders, military troops, police officers, scientists and industrial workers around the world, all who trust the durability and advanced flame-resistant properties of Nomex® to help bring them home safe.
