News International-French

JEC Europe 2014 - DuPont Nomex XF is a unique solution for flame barrier applications in the aerospace industry.

Nomex XF is a novel material that helps protect aluminium fuselage aircraft by providing a robust, durable and lightweight flame barrier that can help prevent outside fire from penetrating an aircraft cabin and prevent flame propagation so that aircraft insulation will not spread fire. The Nomex XF flame barrier offers flexible, thin and very lightweight protection and can be incorporated into thermal acoustic insulation constructions; it has no flame penetration after 10 minutes exposure, more than doubling the burn-through time requirements of FAR 25.856(b).
