Any worker who may be exposed to flash fire or arc flash should consider wearing Nomex® Protective Apparel. Clothing made of Nomex is inherently flame-resistant and self-extinguishing, and because the actual structure of the fiber itself will not burn, Nomex’s flame-resistant properties are permanent. They will never wear away or wash out. Nomex will not burn, melt or drip under high heat. If you are exposed to a flash fire or electric arc, Nomex® Protective Apparel can help save your life.
DuPont® Nomex® fabric is inherently flame-resistant and self-extinguishing. It will not burn, melt or drip under high heat. Although every fabric, if exposed to an arc of sufficient intensity, will break open, Nomex resists break open far better than other fabrics, remaining intact longer to provide the protective barrier needed to give the wearer time to escape a dangerous situation. If you are exposed to a flash fire or electric arc, Nomex® Protective Apparel can potentially save your life.
Nomex Protective Apparel is inherently flame resistant and self-extinguishing. This means that the protection Nomex provides is permanent and can never wash out or be worn away. This is due to the fact that the actual structure of the aramid fiber itself is not flammable. In fact, Nomex will not burn, drip or melt under high heat. It also offers excellent chemical resistance, and it’s engineered to reduce nuisance static.
