About DuPont™ Nomex® IIIA

DuPont™ Nomex® IIIA fibre is engineered by DuPont scientists with the goal of giving workers in the oil and gas, chemical, electrical and general manufacturing industries valuable extra seconds of protection to escape the intense heat and flames of on-the-job thermal hazards such as electric arc, flash fires and pool fires. What's more, fabric made of Nomex® IIIA is extremely durable and has the added benefit of lightweight protection to keep workers safe while feeling cooler and drier. 

Type 462 staple of Nomex® is a blend of Nomex® (93%), Kevlar® brand fibres (5%) and P-140 (2%), a proprietary static dissipative fibre. When converted to fabric it is known commercially as Nomex® IIIA and is used for thermal protective apparel. It offers all the features of Type 455 staple (Nomex® III) plus a higher level of static dissipation in fabric form. The P-140 carbon-core fibre dissipates static generated from fabric-to-fabric and fabric-to-surface rubbing, minimises the contribution of clothing to static hazards and reduces apparent electric filed strength and nuisance static. The staple is dye mergeable and can be package dyed as yarn for use in knit goods or sewing threads, or piece dyed as baric for civilian protective apparel. Except for the static dissipative properties of Nomex® IIIA, all other properties are essentially the same for Nomex® III.

About DuPont™ Nomex® Fibre

Nomex® is a family of aromatic polyamide (aramid) fibres. This family consists of staple fibres, continuous filament yarns, paper and spunlaced fabrics. Uses for staple, yarn and spunlaced fabrics include apparel fabrics to protect against flash fire and electric arc exposure; firefighter garments; fabrics and spun yarns for filtration applications; insulation in fire resistant thermal protective apparel; rubber reinforcement; and in transportation textiles such as airline carpeting. Some uses for paper product include insulation in electric motors and transformers, wire wrapping and honeycombed strength members in many aircraft. Nomex® brand fibres are inherently flame resistant: the flame resistance is a polymer property and does not diminish with 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. Nomex® meta-aramid, poly (meta-phenyleneisophthalamide), is prepared from meta-phenylenediamine and isophthaloyl chloride in an amide solvent. It is a long chain polyamide in which at least 85% of the amide linkages are attached directly to two aromatic rings. The meta oriented phenylene forms bends in the polymer chain, reducing chain rigidity as compared to the para orientation in the chemically similar Kevlar® chain. This flexible polymer chain gives Nomex® more textile-like qualities while retaining high temperature properties similar to Kevlar®.
