The purchase of protective apparel is an investment in safety. A lower initial purchase price does not mean the best value in the long run. NOMEX® garments are extremely hard-wearing and resistant to tear and abrasion, providing the same high level of protection over many years of wear.
The cost of NOMEX® garments is typically higher than protective apparel made from treated or chemically altered fabrics. However, as NOMEX® solutions, they prove to be cost effective in the long run. It has been demonstrated that the wearlife of NOMEX® garments is three to five times longer than similar garments made of blended or treated fabrics. On a long-term cost basis, selecting protective solutions made of NOMEX® can actually reduce clothing budgets and at the same time provide superior levels of protection, comfort and good looks.
