Whenever thermal protection is needed, only one fiber comes to mind — Nomex®. For over 40 years, professionals exposed to fire hazards have relied on the inherently flame-resistant properties of Nomex® fiber to help keep them safe on the job. Nomex® is also used for its outstanding heat resistance in mass transit systems, wind energy equipment, transformers and filtration.
Workers who deal with hazardous substances need confidence in their protective apparel. DuPont™ Tyvek® fabric used in Tyvek® protective apparel is engineered to typically resist particles down to 1 micron in size, including particles such as lead, asbestos, and mould, and helps provide a barrier against many water-based liquid chemicals in low concentration and biological hazards.
