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.
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.
