Military Protection

USES AND APPLICATIONS

Many DuPont™ Tychem® chemical garments are designed to protect workers from biohazards. Many of our fabrics and seams pass both ASTM F1670 and ASTM F1671. Learn how our wide range of garments can help reduce the opportunity for contamination of workers’ skin and clothing.

DuPont offers garments that help provide chemical protection for a host of different military hazards. See which Tyvek® and Tychem® garments offer the chemical protection needed for situations such as initial entry, victim rescue, release mitigation, evidence collection, body removal, and site cleanup.

For 40 years, Americans serving in every branch of the Armed Forces have depended upon body armor and flak jackets made with Kevlar® fiber to help protect them from combat hazards.

Kevlar® fiber is a very important part of the military’s assets. By incorporating its inherent protective technology into military helmets, it has helped to save thousands of lives.

Military clothing with thermal protection made with Nomex® fiber helps safeguard our warfighters against the life-and-death challenges they face.
