The Best Come Together for Firefighter Apparel


Firefighters need all the protection they can get. So when fabric made with Kevlar® fiber is engineered with Nomex® fiber, the result is excellent thermal protection, strength, and durability.


People all around the world depend on the bravery and training of firefighters to offer protection against fires. In turn, firefighters depend on firefighter apparel made with DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® fiber to help them meet the demands of a rigorous and challenging job. Together, these innovative fibers help offer fire resistance, strength, durability, and more. Kevlar® is five times stronger than steel on an equal-weight basis, yet fabrics can be lightweight, comfortable, and thermally protective. It helps enhance the overall durability and strength of lightweight turnout gear outer-shell-and-thermal-liner systems. And Nomex® fiber is inherently flame resistant, tough and flexible.
