Durability and Lifecycle of DuPont™ Nomex®
Durable, inherently fire-resistant Nomex® fiber has an excellent wear life and helps contribute to bottom-line savings.
Flame-Resistant Technologies – FRT vs. Inherent
What are the differences between “inherent” and “treated” flame resistant fabrics? Learn how each fabric reacts when exposed to heat, and when flame-resistant properties can be removed.
Comfort & Heat Stress
For maximum protection against fires, the body must be covered as completely as possible with flame-resistant protective clothing. This requires long pants and long sleeves, making for hot work in warm and humid climates. Understandably, industrial workers may be concerned about potential heat stress when wearing protective apparel. Learn more about the factors that can lead to heat stress, and how DuPont brands can help offer comfort and protection in protective garments.
Who Wears Nomex® Racing Suits
Racing professionals like Jeff Gordon, Robert Pressley, Gerhard Berger, and Jos Verstappen wear racing suits and gear made of Nomex® for a variety of reasons: it's lightweight, flexible, breathable, and comfortable. Most importantly, though, it's flame-resistant. And that performance benefit, more than any other, helped saved their lives. Read their testimonials.
