DuPont has announced that they will commence the year-long celebrations to not only celebrate the long and successful history of the material but also looking and focusing on the future. 

A new brand platform, Nomex Never Quit, has been developed to coincide with the 50th anniversary.  Never Quit exemplifies the spirit of the heroes and innovators around the world who rely on the protection of Nomex.  The Never Quit brand platform was unveiled on 13 March 2017, at the following trade shows at  CWIEME Shanghai, China; 84th International Conference of Doble Clients in Boston, USA; Expo Seguridad Industrial in Mexico City, Mexico; and JEC World 2017 in Paris, France.  

“During the past 50 years, Nomex has helped keep people safe while they drilled beneath the earth’s core, rocketed to outer space and tackled countless other challenges that were once considered impossible,” said John Richard, DuPont Nomex global business director.  “We are certainly proud of what Nomex has made possible in the past, but we believe that the best is yet to come. That’s why we will continue to innovate and collaborate with companies around the world, using the unparalleled protection of Nomex to help solve the toughest challenges of the next 50 years, and beyond.”

Nomex brand fiber is used across a diverse range of applications, but it is perhaps best known as a critical component in protective apparel.  Today, more than 3mn firefighters around the world are protected by turnout gear, station wear and accessories made of Nomex due to its unique combination of flame protection, durability and mobility.
