Safety and Protection

 
 
 

In the face of the ever-increasing global industrialization, we continue to improve upon our materials and standards that help keep all of us safe in the toughest conditions. 

Growing populations, rising hostilities, inhospitable surroundings — these are the harsh realities of today’s world. That’s why we take safety and protection so seriously. We innovate and collaborate with companies, governments, industrial manufacturers, and academics to develop and test a wide range of materials, like DuPont™ Kevlar® aramid fiber for ballistic and cut protection, DuPont™ Tyvek® for general industrial protection, DuPont™ Tychem® for industrial chemical and chemical warfare agent protection , and DuPont™ Nomex® flame resistant fiber for fire dangers. 

No company can solve these problems alone. We're proving that, by working together, we can work towards living on a safer planet.
