Fire resistant jackets are made up of fireproof fabrics which are made up mostly of a fabric called Nomex, a registered trademark of DuPont. It is a chemical version of nylon similar to Kevlar which is used to protect body from the fire.
This is special type of product which is used only in specific field of chemical industries, atomic plants, missile and weapon industries, fire brigades etc

Flame resistance jackets by Naveed Ahmed Fassana

  1. 1. Flame Resistance Jackets Introduction, Manufacturing, Properties, Applications
  2. 2. Introduction  Fire resistant jackets are made up of fireproof fabrics which are made up mostly of a fabric called Nomex, a registered trademark of DuPont. It is a chemical version of nylon similar to Kevlar which is used to protect body from the fire.  This is special type of product which is used only in specific field of chemical industries, atomic plants, missile and weapon industries, fire brigades etc.
  3. 3. Introduction  Term “Flame Resistant” refers to the ability of a material to bear flames and fire.  Fire resistance means the ability of building components and systems to perform their intended fire separating and/or load bearing functions under fire exposure.
  4. 4. Flame Retardants  Flame retardants are compounds added to manufactured materials, such as plastics and textiles, and surface finishes and coatings that inhibit, suppress, or delay the production of flames to prevent the spread of fire.  They may be mixed with the base material (additive flame retardants) or chemically bonded to it (reactive flame retardants). Mineral flame retardants are typically additive while organohalogen and organophosphorus compounds can be either reactive or additive.
  5. 5. Manufacturing  These Fibres Can Be Used  Aramid Fibres  Nomax By Dupont USA  Twaron Fibre  Technora Fibre  Coating Of Nylon  Kevlar Fibre  Meta Aramid Fibres
  6. 6. Properties  Thermal capacity  Fire Resistant  Strong Structure  High Performance  Steam resistant
  7. 7. Applications  People who work in hazardous environments that may involve the following hazards: Electric Arc (electricians, electric utility lineman, etc.)  Flash Fire (refinery, chemical and pharmaceutical workers, etc.)  Combustible Dust Explosion (workers in the paper and pulp industry, food processing, paint, and many more industries).  Plus any worker who come in contact with energized electrical equipment.
  8. 8. Applications  Flame resistant jackets are used in Marines  Rescue institutions  Fire brigade  Medical  Fibre Optics  Outdoor goods  Chemical Industries  Indura Ultra Soft  Nomex insulated uniforms
  9. 9. Applications  Flame Resistant Jackets and Coats create a strong outer layer that keeps you and your clothes protected against heat and flame.  They're made with the same soft fabric and tough construction as all those other jackets that might come your way. You might not even notice that a flame- resistant jacket is special. . .until you're in danger. Made to resist burning and melting, the fabric will keep you safe from stray sparks, flame hazards and intense heat.
  10. 10. Applications  Flame resistant jacket is also essential wear for welders and industrial workers who deal with heat / flame and other metal workers where hot sparks are an issue, for example when using angle grinders.
