DuPont™ Nomex®

Knitted fabrics

Fabrics made from DuPont™ Nomex® fibres.

Dale Techniche produces interlock, modified interlock, pique and honeycomb styles of fabric from various types of DuPont well known brand of Nomex® flame retardant fibre. Nomex® fibres are inherently flame retardant and do not loose their properties during the life of a garment.

Nomex® fibres are available in 3 main types:

Nomex® Type 450
A version of Nomex® fibre which is normally used undyed in a natural near white colour.

Nomex® 111 (or type 455)
This is a dyeable version which also contains 5% of DuPont™ Kevlar® fibres. The Kevlar® fibres give this version extra strength, particularly after the fabric has been exposed to flame. The natural, undyed version of this fibre has a yellow tint given by the natural colour of the Kevlar® fibre. Our standard colours for fabrics made from this fibre are natural, red, royal blue, black and yellow. Other colours can be produced provided sufficient fabric is ordered to meet a commercial dye lot. Please contact us for details.

Nomex® Comfort
This is a blend of finer Nomex® fibres with 5% of Kevlar® fibre to give improved fabric handle. 2% of DuPont P140 antistatic fibre is also included to prevent the build up of static electricity in the fabric discharges of which can cause sparks that could potentially ignite an explosive gas/air mixtures in hazardous situations. The presence P140 fibre enables fabrics produced from this blend to meet standard EN1149. Our standard colour for this material is navy blue, other colours can be produced provided sufficient fabric is ordered to meet a commerical dye lot.

Dale Techniche also produces bonded fabrics from our light and heavier interlock fabrics primarily for use in flame retardant gloves. Dale Techniche produce a medium weight interlock fabric, quality KV2200 from this blend in a standard navy blue shade. Other colours are available subject to a minimum order of 1500 metres.

Proban® is a very durable chemical flame retardant treatment produced by Rhodia SA and applied to cotton fabrics during the dyeing and finishing process. Our standard colours are optic white and navy blue, these fabrics can be dyed to a wide of shades, for example Royal Blue (illustrated above), provided that the order is 500 metres or more. Contact us for further details.

Protex®/Cotton Fabrics.
Protex® is a modified acrylic fibre with inherent flame retardant properties produced by Kaneka Corporation. Fabrics produced from this fibre still retain flame retardant properties which conform to EN531 A and EN533 level 3 when Protex® fibre is blended with 40% cotton. The inclusion of cotton improves the handle and comfort of the fabric. Dale Techniche produces medium weight interlock and pique fabrics from this material. Standard colours are natural and navy blue, other colours are available with a minimum order quantity of 300 metres.
