Nomex®

Nomex® is a common spun fiber used in high-heat applications, most commonly firefighting applications. Nomex® is flame-resistant, resistant to high-temperatures, abrasion-resistant, and will not melt or drip, and carbonizes at 800°F Nomex® retains a soft feel, ensuring comfort when used as part of protective clothing or fire gear.

Nomex® is commonly used in conjunction with Kevlar® to achieve maximum strength and fire-resistance. Another popular characteristic of Nomex® is its ability to be dyed to order, allowing for enhanced branding capabilities.

Beyond firefighting, Sturges’ Nomex® webbings and straps are used in fall protection and industrial OEM applications. Nomex® also has properties to benefit aerospace projects and has been incorporated into several NASA vehicles.
