NOMEX® is a DuPont registered trademark for its family of aromatic polyamide (aramid) fibres. This family consists of staple fibres, continuous filament yarns, paper and spun laced fabrics. Unlike flameretardant treated (FRT) materials, NOMEX® brand fibres are inherently flame resistant (FR): the flame resistance is an inherent property of the polymer chemistry. It will not diminish during the life of the fibre. The fibre’s low stiffness and high elongation give it textile-like characteristics which allow processing on conventional textile equipment.
