We are engaged in presenting an extensive range of Nomax Fire Suit Fire Retardant Suit to our clients. In addition to this, these systems are used in various commercial and residential sectors for fire safety purpose.
Racing suits and apparel made of Nomax Fire Suit fiber help play a pivotal role in providing the valuable seconds racing professionals need to escape fires that result from both on-track collisions and pit accidents. And this protection is long-lasting. Whether it is found in protective suits, underwear, socks, or gloves, the exceptional flame-resistance provided by Nomax Fire Suit fiber cannot be washed out or worn away.
DuPont is teaming up with Shell to sponsor the Shell Eco-marathon, one of the world’s leading student engineering competitions focused on building and driving energy-efficient vehicles. DuPont will be supporting the events by supplying kits to competing teams and providing education and consultation on health and safety compliance during the competitions.
Nomax Fire Suit is a revolutionary heat and flame-resistant fiber, providing protection to millions of workers worldwide. Professional disaster management groups particularly fire fighters have been using the flame-resistant garment made of Nomax Fire Suit brand fiber. Unpredictable fires could create situations where temperatures could reach around 19000 degree Fahrenheit. This leaves workers vulnerable to serious injury. Nomax III A – innovative fiber is a blend of and 2% anti-static fiber. This fiber forms a protective guard to skin.
omen and related amid polymers are related to nylon, but have aromatic backbones, and hence are more rigid and more durable. Nomex is an example of a meta variant of the pyramids (Kevlar is a para amid). Unlike Kevlar, Nomex strands cannot align during filament polymerization and have less strength: its ultimate tensile strength is However, it has excellent thermal, chemical, and radiation resistance for a polymer material. It can withstand temperatures of up to
Nome is produced by condensation reaction from the monomers m-methamphetamine and ophthalmologist chloride.
It is sold in both fiber and sheet forms and is used as a fabric where resistance from heat and flame is required. Nome sheet is actually a calendared paper and made in a similar fashion. Nomex Type 410 paper was the first Nomex paper developed and one of the higher volume grades made, mostly for electrical insulation purposes. Nomex fiber is made in the United States.
Wilfred Weeny , the DuPont scientist responsible for discoveries leading to Nomex, earned a DuPont Lavoisier Medal in 2002 partly for this work.
Nomex Paper is used in electrical laminates such as circuit boards and transformer cores as well as fireproof honeycomb structures where it is saturated with a phenol resin. Honeycomb structures such as these, as well as mylar-Nomex laminates, are used extensively in aircraft construction. Firefighting, military aviation, and vehicle racing industries use Nomex to create clothing and equipment that can withstand intense heat.
A Nomex hood is a common piece of racing and firefighting equipment. It is placed on the head on top of a firefighter’s face mask. The hood protects the portions of the head not covered by the helmet and face mask from the intense heat of the fire.
Wildland firefighters wear Nomex shirts and trousers as part of their personal protective equipment during wildfire suppression activities.
Racing car drivers wear driving suits constructed of Nomex and or other fire retardant materials, along with Nomex gloves, long underwear, balaclavas, socks, helmet lining and shoes, to protect them in the event of a fire.
Military pilots and aircrew wear flight suits made of over 92 percent Nomex to protect them from cockpit fires. Troops riding in ground vehicles often wear Nomex for fire protection. Kevlar thread is often used to hold the fabric together at seams.
In the U.S. space program, Nomex has been used for the Thermal Micro meteoroid Garment on the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (in conjunction with Kevlar and Gore-Tex) and ACES pressure suit, both for fire and extreme environment (water immersion to near vacuum) protection, and as thermal blankets on the payload bay doors, fuselage, and upper wing surfaces of the Space Shuttle Orbiter. It has also been used for the airbags for the Mars Pathfinder and Mars Exploration Rover missions, the Galileo atmospheric probe, the Cassini-Huygens Titan probe, as an external covering on the Amerce Sprint, and is planned to be incorporated into NASA’s upcoming Crew Exploration Vehicle.
Nomex has been used as an acoustic material in Troy, NY, at Relatedness Polytechnic Institute’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center main concert hall. A ceiling canopy of Nomex reflects high and mid frequency sound, providing reverberation, while letting lower frequency sound partially pass through the canopy. According to RIP President Shirley Ann Jackson, is the first venue in the world to use Nomex as an architectural material for acoustic reasons.
Honeycomb-structured Nomex paper is used as a spacer between layers of lead in the ATLAS Liquid Argon Colorimeter, and as a laminate core for hull and deck construction in custom boats such as Stiletto Catamarans like the Stiletto
Nomex is used in industrial applications as a filter in exhaust filtration systems, typically a bag house, that deal with hot gas emissions found in asphalt plants, cement plants, steel smelting facilities, and non-ferrous metal production facilitie
Nomex is used in some classical guitar tops in order to create a ‘composite’ soundboard. When Nomex is laminated between 2 spruce or cedar ‘skins’, a rigid and lightweight plate is produced, which can improve the efficiency of the soundboard. While the ‘laminated’ technique was created by Matthias Andaman, the use of Nome within was first employed by clothier Ger not Wagner
he deaths in fiery crashes of race car drivers Fireball Roberts at Charlotte, and Eddie Sachs and Dave MacDonald at Indianapolis in 1964, led to the use of flame-resistant fabrics such as Nomex In early 1966 Competition Press and Auto week reported: “During the past season, experimental driving suits were worn by Walt Hansen, Masten Gregory, Marvin Pancho and Group 44’s Bob Tulips; these four representing a fairly good cross section in the sport. The goal was to get use-test information on the comfort and laundering characteristics of Nomex. The Chrysler-Plymouth team at the recent Motor Trend 500 at Riverside also wore these suit
