NOMEX® (DEFIANT®) Flame Resistant Uniform Fabrics

DEFIANT® Flame Resistant Uniform Fabrics

Gibson & Barnes' DEFIANT® uniform fabrics are made from DuPont™ NOMEX® IIIA fiber. DEFIANT® fabrics inherently resist flames and many chemicals and they dissipate static. The fire, chemical, and static resistance of these fabrics does not wash out during laundering. Fabrics made from NOMEX® IIIA fiber are widely used for clothing for the military, fire fighters, auto racers, and industrial workers.

NOMEX® IIIA is a blend of 93% NOMEX®, 5% KEVLAR®, and 2% P-140 fibers manufactured by DuPont. NOMEX® is a meta-aramid fiber that doesn't ignite, melt, or drip, and it retains its mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. KEVLAR® is a para-aramid fiber that has high tensile strength and is used to reinforce NOMEX®. P-140 is a static-dissipative fiber.

DEFIANT® uniform fabrics are available in lightweight plain-weave, heavyweight twill, and 4.5-ounce mil-spec fabric.

  • The lightweight plain-weave fabric is strong, but also can keep you cool.
  • The heavyweight twill has a crisp, professional appearance and will give years of good-looking service.
  • The 4.5-ounce military-specification fabric is used for the military CWU-27/P flight suit and is available in sage green, tan, and camouflage.
  • Other weights and weaves are available for special orders.

Gibson & Barnes uses thread and zippers made from NOMEX® in its uniforms made from DEFIANT® fabrics. Uniforms made from DEFIANT® fabric can be laundered or dry cleaned.
