The high level of heat and flame protection provided by NOMEX® is due to the molecular structure of the fibre, which means that the heat and flame resistance is inherent and permanent. Specialised NOMEX® protective garments are mostly worn by firefighters and workers in the petroleum, petrochemical and public utility industries.

The KEVLAR® range of solutions for hand and wrist protection includes industry specific designs. KEVLAR® Comfort Technology and KEVLAR® Clean Technology gloves offer cut-resistance levels 3 and 4; KEVLAR® Armor Technology offers at least level 5 protection. All KEVLAR® solutions carry a distinctive DuPontTM KEVLAR® Power of Performance label, which assures both wearers and specifiers that they have the level of protection they need for the job at hand.

Protective coveralls made of DuPontTM TYVEK® offer excellent barrier protection, durability, comfort and fit. TYVEK® garments can be used to protect the wearer in environments where the risk of dry particulates, liquid spills and water-based chemicals as well as dirt are a threat to the health or safety of personnel. Low weight, high strength, puncture, tear and abrasion resistance, vapour permeability, water repellency, rot resistance, and biological inertness are some of these. In addition, DuPontTM TYVEK® is low-linting, smooth and opaque. TYVEK® Classic Plus with its recent certification against biological risks according to EN 14126:2003 offers a very interesting combination of protection durability and comfort.


For a higher level of protection against hazardous and chemical environments, TYCHEM® C, TYCHEM® F coveralls can be specified. These garments consist of TYVEK® with various additional qualities and finishes. Now also certified against biological risks according to EN 14126:2003, they offer a combination of chemical and biological protection as well as lightweight in a single garment. For High Level protection against toxic corrosive gases, liquids and solid chemical DuPont offers TYCHEM® TK full coverage gas tight suits.
