Nomex

Nomex materials are made of high-temperature-resistant aromatic polyamide fibres which - equivalent to HDC materials - are woven of staple fibre yarns, i.e. yarns that are spun of short thin fibres.

The final yarn is made by twisting two yarns into one yarn that is used both in warp and weft direction (length- and crosswise of fabric). The result is a fabric that is capable of carrying a large amount of dust without blocking the air flow through the material. Such blocking would require washing of the textile duct to ensure the distribution of the calculated quantity of air at the calculated pressure loss.

Similar to Trevira CS, Nomex materials are flame retardant, however, Nomex holds the extra feature of having a very high melting and self-ignition temperature. Nomex does not melt but decomposes at 370°C. Nomex materials for TBV are mostly applied in the shipping industry, but also for very high temperature supply in special industrial applications.

The material is only availble in white or Blue.
