Learn how Nomex®, Tyvek® and Tychem® garments protect operators and technicians

Personal Protection in the Petrochemical and Chemical Industry


For hot surface contact hazards present in metal and glass forming foundries, DuPont created terry cloth made of Kevlar® fibre for use in heat-resistant gloves. Heavyweight gloves and mitts composed of 100% Kevlar® terry cloth and Kevlar® blends help offer a high level of protection for high-heat applications.

For over 40 years, DuPont™ Nomex® has been providing thermal protection for industrial workers in the most hazardous environments, delivering highly effective flame- and heat-resistance, in exceptionally durable and lightweight solutions.

DuPont™ ProShield® FR coveralls help provide limited protection against flames and chemicals. The new solution to protect you and your reusable flame-resistant garment worn beneath it.

DuPont™ Tempro® limited-flame-spread coveralls help provide dirt and grime protection, helping to safeguard primary flame-resistant protective garments from non hazardous dirt and grime.

DuPont™ Tychem® C chemical garments help offer comfortable, limited-use protection against a wide range of inorganic chemical and biological hazards.

DuPont™ Tychem® C2 coveralls combine the barrier performance of Tychem® C with higher mechanical strength and a resealable design.

Offering the protection of a broad chemical barrier, DuPont™ Tychem® F coveralls play an important role in helping to protect personnel against numerous toxic industrial organic chemicals, highly concentrated inorganic chemicals, biohazards and chemical warfare agents.

DuPont™ Tychem® F2 garments combine the chemical barrier of Tychem® F with a higher mechanical strength and a resealable design.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Accessories complement our chemical protective clothing perfectly, and can help offer enhanced protection for body parts that are more exposed to hazardous substances. More durable than accessories made of alternative fabrics, they help provide excellent protection and value in use.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Plus combines type-4 performance with the comfort of a Tyvek® suit.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Xpert garments offer reliable protection for occupations that involve threats ranging from chemical handling, asbestos, pharmaceutical or radioactive particulate exposure to biological protection.
