New high visibility Nomex ProVis solution for industrial workers

17
Mar '10
There is an increasing demand from industrial workers and contractors operating in high risk areas to wear an EN471 (high visibility) compliant garment that has the additional benefits of heat and flame protection.

Using the world renowned Nomex fibre, DuPont Personal Protection has developed a yellow high visibility solution called Nomex ProVis: this solution offers inherent protection from heat and flame, from molten metal splashes, and from heat of an electric arc; it is anti-static and performs in environments where high day light visibility is required.

Nomex ProVis is based on an engineered blend solution manufactured with a DuPont proprietary spinning technology. The special construction of Nomex ProVis fabric provides equivalent thermal and physical properties to Nomex Comfort fabrics, in combination with the additional requirements for EN471 high visibility yellow.

Oriol Rofes, Nomex Marketing Manager, explains: “We identified a need for very comfortable flame resistant protective clothing that also offered high visibility and so we developed Nomex ProVis. Whilst the garment offers much needed high visibility it also incorporates Nomex, a recognized flame resistant fibre from DuPont. Nomex ProVis offers protection against a multitude of hazards for employees working in many different industries such as petrochemical and utilities.”
