Growth in the Middle East Cement Industry Triggers Increased Operational Risk

Growth in the Middle East Cement Industry Triggers Increased Operational Risk

From boiler blasts to explosions, the risks facing the cement industry are multiple. Companies in this sector cannot simply rely on “not doing the wrong thing” to avoid accidents and repeats. They need to put proactive measures and systems in place to prevent recurrences. Learn more.

Sorona® Life Cycle Assessment

Sorona® Life Cycle Assessment

From reduced consumption of non-renewable energy resulting in a reduced dependence on oil to reduced CO2 emissions, the cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment shows the sustainability benefits of Sorona® versus petroleum-based materials like nylon.

Cut Standards

Cut Standards

To facilitate the choice of mechanical (cut) protective clothing, both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Union (EU) have developed cut standards for selection criteria.

Nomex® for Performance Durability

Nomex® for Performance Durability

Garments made of Nomex® fibre have helped protect firefighters for decades. Continuous exhaustive testing proves that they excel in the long-term retention of their heat and flame protective qualities.

Nomex® for Lower Wear-Life Cost

Nomex® for Lower Wear-Life Cost

Today’s firefighters need to be able to optimise budget vs. performance, without compromising on safety. For decades DuPont™ Nomex® fibre has demonstrated lasting protective performance, while helping to minimise repair and maintenance costs.

Nomex® for Heat Stress Protection

Nomex® for Heat Stress Protection

Heat stress is a dangerous condition in any situation, but for firefighters it can be especially life threatening. In fact, heat stress is the number-one cause of casualties among firefighters. Nomex® fibre helps reduce heat stress due to its higher air permeability.

DuPont™ Sorona® and Carpet Recycling

DuPont™ Sorona® and Carpet Recycling

Knowing the important role carpet recycling plays in helping the environment, DuPont research has proven that face fiber made with DuPont™ Sorona® can be shaved from the carpet backing, turned into pellets, and spun into new fiber. In fact, there are even more potential ways to recycle carpet made with Sorona®.
