Nomex® Flame and Heat Resistant Zipper

Nomex® is a fire-retardant zipper used in industrial and consumer applications. The application dictates the level of fire protection the zipper must achieve. Nomex® uses an auto lock metal and non-conductive slider as the zip is available in both metals and vislon. The flame and heat resistance are achieved through the application of the meta-aramid fibre tape and high-temperature vislon teeth, which makes the zipper stronger against physical forces which are essential for personal protection.

From the tip of the bottom stop to the tip of notches of the cut end
Zipper with double sliders (arranged in bottom-to-bottom relation) From the top end of one slider to the top end of the other slider From the top stop to the tip of notches of the cut end

Same as the top tape extension end portion
Open-end zipper From the top end of the slider to the tip of the box From the top stop to the cut end

Two-way separator from the top From the top end of the slider to the bottom end of the supplementary tape From the top stop to the cut end

Top open zipper From the top stop to the tip of the box From the top stop to the cut end

Reversible slider Rather than from the top end, measurements should be made from the shoulder inlet portion of the slider From the top stop to the cut end, Reversible slider

When the top stop does not enter the slider Measurement should be made from the top stop From the top stop to the tip of notches of the cut end

TECHNICAL INFO

The fire-retardant tape materials used on the Nomex® zip are cleared by the U.S. Federal Aviation Specification [FAR-25-853(B)]. The aramid fibre on the tape is inherently flame resistant and can resist heat and flame up to 750F. The Nomex® Vislon zipper has high temperature Nylon polymer teeth up to 500F together with a non-conductive slider “PAZ” which is a high temperature material. The tape in the zipper contains DuPont Kevlar® fibre allowing the zipper to become stronger against physical forces which are essential for personal protection.

NOTE

Care instructions apply:

  • “Flame retardant”: The material will burn but self-extinguish. Also, flame-retardant material can melt and drip.
  • Nomex® aramid fiber tape to resist heat and flame (up to 750F)
  • Nomex® aramid fiber is inherently flame resistant (does not melt or drip when exposed to flame)
  • Nomex® Vislon® uses High-temperature Nylon polymer teeth (up to 500F)
  • Non-conductive slider “PAZ” (high-temperature Nylon Material) is available in Vislon®
