Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer parts (FFKM) resist over 1,800 different chemicals and withstand temperatures up to 327ºC. This elastomer is widely used in demanding chemical processing and semiconductor manufacturing, as well as pharmaceutical, aerospace and oil & gas applications.
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.
Built on a 50-year track record, Nomex® provides lightweight, durable, heat and flame-resistant performance for a range of applications and industries.
Whenever thermal protection is needed, only one fiber comes to mind — Nomex®. For over 40 years, workers across industries have relied on the inherently flame-resistant properties of Nomex® to help keep them safe from the hazards they face on the job.
Nomex® paper and pressboard have earned a reputation for delivering superior quality and proven reliability for a wide range of electrical insulation applications, meeting the ever-increasing demands of a changing world.
DuPont’s commitment to safety stands at 6’1” and is covered with 122 heat sensors. Thermo-Man® is one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world and helps DuPont test the performance of flame-resistant garments.
Workers who deal with hazardous substances need confidence in their protective apparel. DuPont™ Tyvek® fabric used in Tyvek® protective apparel is engineered to typically resist particles down to 1 micron in size, including particles such as lead, asbestos, and mould, and helps provide a barrier against many water-based liquid chemicals in low concentration and biological hazards.
