DUPONT PRODUCTS & SERVICES
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.
Thermal personal protective equipment made of DuPont™ Nomex® helps provide police officers with superior protection from the dangers of heat and flame (Molotov cocktails, explosive environments, exploding munitions). It also offers protection from electrostatic discharge hazards, certain chemical splashes, insect bites, and cold and wet weather.
