Nomex

Nomex is a meta-aramid fiber developed in 1961 by DuPont and first marketed in 1967. Known for its inherent flame resistance, Nomex has been the fabric of choice for protective apparel in firefighting, oil, gas, petrochemical, industrial, military, police/swat, U.S. Forest Service and auto racing industries for over forty years. Nomex has outstanding strength and abrasion resistance so hoods manufactured from the fiber have exceptional wear life making them cost effective in the long run. Other properties of Nomex include:

  • Inherently flame resistant
  • Exceptional wear life
  • Superb flash fire protection
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Easy Care – can be laundered using normal home and commercial laundering and dry cleaning techniques
  • Mid-weight (7oz. / sq. yd.)
  • Natural off-white color
  • Less comfort than other hood fibers or fiber blends due to low moisture absorbency of 4.5%
  • Meets CAL-OSHA Requirements
    Passes Fed. Test 191, Method 5903.2: CAL OSHA Sections 3406(d)
  • Complies with OSHA Rule 29 CFR Part 1910, 269

FABRIC:

  • Both outer shell and lining are a blend of Nomex®(Meta-Aramid) - approx. 7 oz sq yd.
  • 1 x 1 rib knit fabric - knit to allow approx. 200% stretch for maximum stretch and recov­ery.
  • Calendared to minimize laundry shrinkage.

STITCH TYPES AND SEAMS:


  • All stitching conforms to Federal Standard 751 Specifications (FED-STD-751).

  • For a contoured fit the hood is seamed from top of face opening to bottom back.
