Nomex® is known for protecting first responders, utility and electrical workers, but that’s just the beginning. From below the earth’s surface to beyond the atmosphere, and everywhere in between, Nomex® enables a stronger, safer tomorrow.
Nomex® for PPE
PPE garments made with Nomex® deliver superior heat, flame and arc flash protection, while providing lightweight, comfortable solutions that meets or exceeds industry standards.
Nomex® is an inherently heat and flame-resistant fiber that won’t melt, drip or support combustion providing a superior barrier between for what’s inside from the hazards around it.
Tested for the hazards you face
Thermo-Man® is the world’s most advanced life-size thermal burn evaluation system. Our Thermo-Man® units use state-of-the-art technology to demonstrate the durability and superior flame-resistance Nomex® delivers compared to other FR solutions.
Racing suits and apparel made of Nomex® fiber help play a pivotal role in providing the valuable seconds racing professionals need to escape fires that result from both on-track collisions and pit accidents.
