|What is the difference
between Proban, Nomex and Cordura Nylon Fabrics?
Proban is a 100% Pre-Shrunk Cotton fabric that has been chemically treated to make it flame resistant. Proban FR/7A fabrics are certified by Westex Inc. to retain their original flame resistance through fifty (50) home washes or twenty-five (25) industrial washes.
Nomex is a fabric developed by Dupont. Inherently flame-resistant, NOMEX® won't melt, drip, burn or support combustion in the air. Performance benefits like these play a pivotal role in providing the valuable seconds racing professionals need to escape and survive these critical situations. And, this protection is long-lasting the exceptional flame-resistance provided by NOMEX® cannot be washed out or worn away.
Cordura Nylon fabric is also a Dupont fabric. We offer it in both a 500 and 1000 denier weight for our Karting Suit line. It is a lightweight, abrasion-resistant and durable fabric excellent for karting were the driver is not strapped in and there is no chance of fire. Warning: Cordura fabric is NOT FIRE RESISTANT and will melt with extreme heat and or fire.
