RICHMOND, VA—As part of its focus on protecting people, DuPont launched DuPont™ Nomex® MHP fabrics, its latest breakthrough in flame resistant innovations. Nomex MHP offers inherent, multihazard protection that can help keep wearers safe from a variety of thermal hazards, including heat and flame, arc flash, and small molten metal splashes in hazardous industrial areas.
Nomex MHP was engineered in response to market needs and to meet or exceed the international standards for heat and flame protection (NFPA 2112, ENISO11612), arc flash (NFPA 70E, IEC 61482-2) and small molten metal splash protection (ENISO11611), while excelling in comfort, durability and value.
Engineered to absorb moisture, Nomex MHP dries faster than cotton. It offers a number of features for superior wearability, including a lighter weight, and was proven the overall winner in key comfort criteria in independent studies conducted by an institute for textiles and clothing. Additionally, the qualities of Nomex MHP help ensure wash and color fastness and low shrinkage from washing, helping workers to look their best and move comfortably on the job site.
DuPont™ Nomex® fiber has offered thermal protection around the world for decades. Workers across the manufacturing, chemical, and refining industries depend on its thermal protection to help keep them safe. Nomex® MHP extends the brand by taking on new thermal hazards and offering manufacturers optimized multi-hazard protection for their personal protective equipment.
The flame protection of Nomex® MHP, like in all products made of Nomex, is inherent and provides permanent protection that won’t wash out or wear away.
