    NomexWhat is Nomex? Over the years, the safety information learned at the race track - trials by fire so to speak - have helped the race industry improve every aspect of managing the threat of fire and protecting the people who provide the drama and spectacle of racing. Race apparel made with NOMEX® is at the core of this safety improvement.

    That's because racing material of DuPont NOMEX® brand fiber plays an important role in providing the valuable seconds race pros need to escape and survive intense fires that result from both on-track collisions and pit area accidents. And, this protection is long lasting. Whether it is found in protective suit, underwear, gloves or socks, the exceptional fire resistance provided by NOMEX® cannot be washed out or worn away.

    Race gear of NOMEX® is innately fire-resistant, which means its resistance to flame is built into the fibers. It also will not sustain combustion in air or melt when exposed to fire. Because NOMEX® carbonizes and becomes thicker when exposed to intense heat, it forms a protective barrier between the heat source and the skin. This unique reaction to intense heat provides valuable escape time when flash fires occur and protects wearers against them. NOMEX® delivers confidence while managing heat and flames head on.

    When protective material is tested on THERMO-MAN®, all systems are go
    THERMO-MAN® is one of the most advanced testing methods for evaluating burn injury potential and measuring protective material performance. This scientific evaluation system for thermal burn injuries is a six-foot, one-inch-tall manikin equipped with 122 heat sensors. THERMO-MAN® can be exposed to various fire hazards through controlled burns to test burn protection properties of garment material constructions, fabric weights, material types and garment design styles. Results predict the amount, degree and location of burn injuries that would be suffered by the driver in a flash fire. DuPont scientists use this information to help apparel manufacturers develop optimum designs in lightweight, fire-resistant suits that equip drivers, pit crews, rescue teams and track officials with garments that are comfortable and provide the best thermal protection possible.

    And, suits are just part of these professionals' protection. One of the most effective ways they enhance their racing safety on the track is to increase the number of layers they wear. Because it provides thorough body coverage from neck to wrists to ankles, long johns of NOMEX® are one of several layers race drivers and pit crews put on before race time.
