Flame-resistant NOMEX IIIA garments are described, charted, and illustrated in this free 16-page catalog to “help protect workers across a broad range of industries including petroleum, petrochemical, electric and gas utilities, as well as professional firefighters.”
Flash fire hazards are discussed as to exposure for fuel handlers, pipeline workers, offshore rig crews, or plant operators and mechanics. NOMEX III aramid fiber’s outstanding protection in garments is emphasized in the heat and flame of flash fires where conditions can reach 1,470°F., heat fluxes up to 4.0 cal/cm2-sec, and heat exposure energies up to 20.0 cal/cm2, and 2 to 5-sec duration. Various test data and field performance statistics highlight NOMEX IIIA-availability for coveralls, jackets, shirts, and pants.
