View answers to some of the most frequently asked questions DuPont receives about industrial gloves made of Kevlar® fibre.

Typical protective fabrics made of Nomex® fibres can be up to 40% lighter than cotton and cotton-blended fabrics which were treated with flame-retardant chemicals.

Chemical hazards can occur in conjunction with thermal hazards, such as accidental splashes of chemical products onto protective clothing, or through leakages of chemical products.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can lead to the generation of sparks with energy levels sufficient to ignite possible surrounding vapours, aerosols of flammable liquids or dust particles, leading to an explosion.

In order to choose adequate protective clothing, the potential incident heat energy (in units of energy per surface area) caused by an electric arc and to which a worker may be exposed, needs to be calculated in a thorough risk assessment.

Fabrics and garments made of DuPont™ Nomex® help enable light-weight solutions with excellent moisture management.

Garments of DuPont™ Nomex® fibre can be cleaned by home or industrial laundry or dry cleaning. The following suggestions will help keep your garments looking their best and optimise their wear life.
