The fiber for fire.
We manufacture the majority of our deployment coats and pants from high-performance fibers made by DuPontTM – for example DuPont™ Nomex® – for reliable protection from heat and flames. This high-performance synthetic fiber does not melt and is resistant to heat and flames. These properties are attributable to the molecular structure of the fiber. The heat- and flame-resistant properties are retained even after frequent washing and intensive use – over many years.
A barrier against heat
DuPont™ Nomex® protects your team reliably from exposure to high temperatures during operations – a risk factor that demonstrably leads to the majority of injuries during fire-fighting. The fiber expands under severe heat so that the fabric forms an even better protective barrier. The excellent breathability of DuPont™ Nomex® fabric helps keep the body’s core temperature at a constant level in very hot conditions.
Best wearing comfort for your safety
Protective clothing made of DuPont™ Nomex® fits especially comfortably. And that is pivotal: Your team members need to be able to move freely without restriction to do a proper job whilst simultaneously minimizing their own exposure to risk. DuPont™ Nomex® is so hard-wearing and durable, it will protect your team for many years to come.
Deciding to use DuPontTM therefore pays off double – to the benefit of safety of your team and your wallet. That is why fire-fighters around the world rely on protective clothing made from DuPont™ Nomex®.
