DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems  
Advanced Fiber Systems has two main products, Kevlar® and Nomex®
KEVLAR® is an advanced technology that helps transform the ordinary to the extraordinary. It combines high strength with light weight, and comfort with protection. Products made with KEVLAR® brand fiber help those who use them to do more, to go farther, to be even better at what they do. Whether it's working in a plant, at a construction site or in a forest. Whether it's walking a beat, escorting a prisoner to his cell, or completing a tour of duty.

NOMEX® is the brand name for a family of high temperature resistant fibres invented and produced by DuPont. NOMEX® brand fibres are the most widely used high technology fibres for heat and flame protective apparel. The fact that NOMEX® can be dyed in a wide range of colours means that safety and corporate appearance can be combined into one hard wearing comfortable garment.
