Nomex is the brand of inherently Flame retardant (IFR) fabric made by Dupont.
INHERENT FR - means that it permanently self extinguishes fire
Nomex is an aramid fabric that is inherently or permanently fire retardant - so it never washes out of the garment.
Nomex is antistatic.
Nomex can also be very lightweight - so while still protecting you from heat, fire and skin burns, Nomex allows you to only have to wear a lighweight garment, such as the:-
Nomex 225gm IFR coverall This is an inherently FR, lightweight, and antistatic coverall, made by Wenaas.
Nomex 260gm IFR coverall This is inherently FR, reasonably lightweight, and antistatic.
Nomex 190gm IFR coverall This is inherently FR, lightweight and antistatic.
Nomex 150 gm IFR coverall: This 150gm royal blue nomex aramid coverall is as light as the shirt on your back - yet still gives the full Fr proteciton you need.
Nomex can also be made electric arc resistant, such as the Twin layered Nomex FR AST electric arc protection coverall - used by utilities and electrical bodies.
This is a truly exceptional, highly technical, layered, FR and antistatic (AST) and electric arc coverall, with Nordic style hi vis tape.
Nomex flash hood or balaclava ensures that you get permanent Inherent FR protection - and is used by fire fighters, racing car drivers and operatiors int eh North Sea.
NB We do offer other alternatives to Nomex. These are Inherently FR garments offering similar protection, but made with aramids such as Kermel or Protex 350gm IFR coveralls or the Portwest Araflame IFRcoverall etc ie not made with Nomex by Dupont: eg the 170gmRoots Coverall
