Fight the Heat with Flame Resistant Clothing
Industrial workers rely on flame resistant clothing made from leading DuPont brands.
You can’t predict when a fire or electrical hazard will occur or how intense it will be. With so many unknowns, workers that are exposed to flame, fire, and electric arc hazards rely on flame resistant clothing made from DuPont brands. Our portfolio includes Nomex® fiber for fire protection, Protera® fabric for arc flash protection, and Kevlar® fiber for gloves that are resistant to high temperatures — We believe that just meeting standards isn’t enough, so we rigorously test our materials against a wide variety of scenarios, always working to help manufacturers make their protective apparel and accessories stronger, more durable, and safer. In fact, we go beyond basic test methods and test Nomex® in 4- and 5-second fires to give workers those valuable extra seconds of protection. Safety has been a core value at DuPont for more than 200 years and we’ll continue to innovate and focus on safety for many more.
Best known for its use in ballistic and stab-resistant body armor, Kevlar® brand aramid fiber is credited with helping to save thousands of lives. Lightweight and extraordinarily strong, it’s used to make a variety of clothing, accessories, and equipment safer, more cut resistant and durable.
