Nomex® has excellent thermal protection resisting temperatures over 2000ºF and also boasts great resistance to chemicals, solvents, radiation, and very low temperatures. All of these properties, also make it fairly difficult to dye. Our line of select OrcoSperse™ pigment dispersions allows the Nomex® to be pigment printed or pad-coated.

Actual dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be dyed in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
