INFORMATION & IDEAS
- Tyvek® Classic Xpert Ecopack
New packaging concept for DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Xpert can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions
DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Xpert Eco-Pack can have a significantly reduced impact on the environment when compared to its standard packaging format.
Nomex® for Performance Durability
Garments made of Nomex® fibre have helped protect firefighters for decades. Continuous exhaustive testing proves that they excel in the long-term retention of their heat and flame protective qualities.
Nomex® for Lower Wear-Life Cost
Today’s firefighters need to be able to optimise budget vs. performance, without compromising on safety. For decades DuPont™ Nomex® fibre has demonstrated lasting protective performance, while helping to minimise repair and maintenance costs.
Nomex® for Heat Stress Protection
Heat stress is a dangerous condition in any situation, but for firefighters it can be especially life threatening. In fact, heat stress is the number-one cause of casualties among firefighters. Nomex® fibre helps reduce heat stress due to its higher air permeability.

Over 14 GW – 6000 SLIM® and Bio-SLIM® Transformer Units installed since 2001
In 2000, CG Power Systems teamed up with DuPont to develop high-temperature, liquid-immersed transformers targeted at the wind segment. Today, thousands of wind turbine transformers with Nomex® insulation have been installed globally.
Reliable Slot Insulation
Whether it’s motor repair, rotor rebuilding, replacement laminations or stator restacking, Darby Electric relies on Nomex® paper and laminates for slot insulation and other critical applications to ensure quality that exceeds customer expectations.
Flanders Industrial Motor Repair
Flanders Electric provides the highest quality power products and services, including industrial motor repair. An integral part of the quality equation is the use of Nomex® paper and Nomex® based laminates.
The use of Nomex® paper and pressboard helps enable a lighter weight traction transformer design for Amtrak’s Acela Express, reducing the weight of the equipment transformer by between 15% and 25%.
