Nomex® and Kevlar® have been a leading choice in global fire service for over 50 years, and we are committed to making the next 50 even better with solutions like Nomex® Nano Flex for hoods, and Nomex(R) Nano for thermal liners. Both Nomex® Nano Flex and Nomex® Nano provide lightweight comfort while enhancing the garment’s overall agility, moisture management and particulate protection – which help to address some of the leading challenges firefighters face today, like heat stress.

Nomex® Nano and Nomex® Nano flex solutions are key ingredients of the DuPont™ Nomex® Xtreme Performance product category. Nomex® Xtreme Performance solutions combine the tested and proven heat and flame protection of DuPont™ Nomex® with the lightweight strength of DuPont™ Kevlar® and the thermal damage tolerance and durability of high-performance materials such as PBO, DuPont™ Nomex® Nano and DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex.
