Leading innovation and market driven company DuPont is showcasing its new protective garment Nomex at the ongoing Middle East Electricity show in Dubai. Garments made of DuPont Nomex brand fibre provide outstanding built-in flame resistance and protect users from electric arc flash. They are especially designed to be used by workers of the utility sector.

Garments made of Nomex fibre are inherently flame-resistant, lighter in weight for increased comfort, and breathable. Innovative Nomex fabrics rapidly dissipate sweat through the fabric, helping the wearer feel dry and more comfortable.

Nomex is a highly cost-effective solution in terms of cost per wear, thanks to its exceptional durability. The fabric can also offer additional protection against chemical hazards if it is treated with an appropriate fluorocarbon finish.

“The spirit of innovation has always been the driving force behind DuPont’s endeavours and we are committed towards further improving our products to ensure the safety of our customers in even the harshest conditions. The protection of the people is of utmost importance to us and this has led us to cultivate more efficient ways to develop and test new materials. Nomex aims to create new benchmarks of excellence in safety apparel and we believe that it will greatly contribute towards ensuring workplace safety,” said Amr El Moniem, UAE country manager, DuPont.

Nomex garments with flame-resistant properties are apt for workers from sectors like electricity or gas as they face the risk of heat and flame due to electric arc flashes and gas accidents. (KD)
