About DuPont Personal Protection
- DuPont is committed to protecting people. From first responders to industrial workers, DuPont provides protective apparel solutions to meet your safety needs. DuPont Personal Protection offers a wide range of proven, science-based solutions including some of the most trusted brands in the industry: Nomex® and Protera® for thermal hazards; Kevlar® for ballistic and cut/abrasion hazards; Tyvek® for dry particulate hazards; and Tychem® for liquid and gas chemical hazards.
DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® brand fiber provide proven protection, durability and comfort from the inside out. 70% of your turnout’s thermal protection comes from the inner components made with DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar®. The thermal and flame-resistant properties of Nomex® and Kevlar® are engineered into the fibers and cannot be worn off or washed out, helping turnout gear retain their protective performance over the life of the garment.
DuPont™ Tychem® garments provide protection from a range of chemical hazards, from light splash to corrosive and toxic vapors and gases. Tychem® Level A suits, such as Tychem® TK and Tychem® Responder® offer the highest levels of protection for HazMat and first responder situations. In addition, we offer a line of Tychem® garments certified to NFPA 1991, NFPA 1994 Class 2 and NFPA 2112.
