Flame-Resistant Fabrics for Greater Firefighter Safety

By working with garment manufacturers and firefighters, DuPont develops innovations that help improve firefighter safety with enhanced thermal protection at higher temperatures.

Those who dedicate their lives to protecting ours deserve the best protection available. That’s why DuPont worked in true collaboration with firefighters and garment manufacturers to increase firefighter safety with a revolutionary new flame-resistant fabric technology that will offer additional protection in emergency conditions.


The Science Behind Personal Protective Equipment for Firefighters

DuPont has continuously produced and improved upon its flame-resistant fibers and fabrics to address the expectations of firefighter safety and the perils of the job. Now, the DuPont research team has developed a new Nomex® fabric technology that can help provide firefighters with enhanced thermal protection at higher temperatures.

In a fire, seconds make all the difference. This new Nomex® technology can help provide firefighters more time to remove themselves from dangerous circumstances.
