When worker safety comes first, there’s only one name you need to know for superior industrial protective clothing—DuPont.
Our scientists and technicians have created and rigorously tested the materials that help protect against heat, flame and fire, electric arc flash, cut hazards, chemicals, dry particles, lead, asbestos, mold and hazardous aerosols. And there is further innovation to come. Whether you’re in the oil and gas, automotive, chemical, agricultural, food processing, manufacturing, or maintenance business, there’s an industry-leading DuPont solution suited to the job you need to get done.
Learn more below about each DuPont brand’s role in industrial safety.
DuPont™ Nomex® for flame-resistant protection
Garments made of Nomex® fiber are inherently flame-resistant, lighter in weight for increased comfort, and are 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.
DuPont™ Kevlar® for thermal, cut and abrasion protection – plus a comfortable fit
Kevlar® fiber helps manufacturers provide strength at high temperatures, making it ideal for gloves and mittens used in high-heat applications. Kevlar® is inherently flame-resistant and will not melt – unlike nylon, polyester, and polyethylene. In addition to welders and foundry employees, also automotive, steel, glass, and metal workers all over the world trust gloves and apparel made of Kevlar® fiber.
DuPont™ Tyvek® for general industrial protection
Tyvek® helps offer an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort to employees in industrial applications and contamination control environments, including manufacturing, pharmaceutical, automotive and utilities.
DuPont™ Tychem® for comprehensive chemical protection
Tychem® helps protect emergency response personnel and workers in a wide range of industries. Chemical protective clothing made of Tychem® has been tested against a broad range of hazardous chemicals.
DuPont™ ProShield® coveralls for non-hazardous exposure
Coveralls made of ProShield® are designed to help protecti workers against non-hazardous dry particle and light liquid splash applications.
