Nomex


Constant Temperature of Use

               - 60° C + 240°C

Description
Nomex is a braid with a Nomex thread , developed and treated to resist high temperatures. It is used in particularly for mechanical protection of cabling used at high temperatures.

Presentation
Nomex braid is manufactured in diameters from 2 mm to 30 mm.

Use
Nomex sheath can be used for cabling exposed to high temperatures cabling exposed to acids, to « beta » and « gamma » radiation, to X-rays (but not no housework detergents).

Code
Color code:
Standard: Olive Green- 5 , White- 9
Other colours: BI-COLOURE one request.

Series
4000 Series and 3100 Series are manufactured with 220 decitex a thread of olive green or white color.


Flammability , Smoke Fume and Off- Gass Generation
The oxygen Limited Index (LOI) of Nomex is approximately 28. 
Thus, when exposed to flame at room temperature is a normal air environment, Nomex will not continue to burn when the flame is removed. At temperatures above approximately 800° F (427° C), Nomex carbonizes and forms a though char.

The composition and quantity of off-gasses varies widely depending on rate of heating, presence of oxygen and other factors. Burning Nomex brand fiber produces combustion products similar to those of wood , wool , cotton, polyester and acrylic. At combustion temperatures, Nomex gives off carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, and sometimes traces of hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxide are detected.

Under less stringent heating conditions, Nomex degrades very slowly, giving off small quantities of a wide variety of organic compounds, these may include carbon, dioxide, acetone, acetamide, acetaldehyde, benzene, butane, toluene and many other compounds in trace amounts depending on exposure conditions.
